    Hey,

    My name is Oded Sharon, I’m the CEO of Corbomite Games, a nice little indie game development company from Israel and I like to party. Especially when I’m traveling to conferences out of town. I’m also going to be speaking in GDC SF this year.

    Parties in conferences are the best place to network and meet new people form the game industry.

    Every GDC I find myself asking “What parties are happening tonight?”, so this year I decided to open up his blog.

    I’m going to list all the parties that I can hear about here in this blog and on our twitter: @GDCParties

    If you know about any parties, please email me at parties@gdcparties.com
