Join us for our first virtual Games NI event, where we ask: Is remote working the future of Northern Ireland’s games industry?

Working hard or hardly working?

Northern Ireland is in lockdown and we’re all stuck at home, but the game development scene is still alive and kicking! Some of you are using the time to learn new skills, and for others working from home has become the new norm. But how do you keep a development team organised when working remotely?

Join us on Zoom* next Wednesday, May 13th, for Games NI’s first virtual meetup. We’ll celebrate some exciting recent news for the local games industry, look at new job announcements, and highlight upcoming opportunities for game developers in Northern Ireland.

Event – Remote Work: Panel speakers will give short 10-minute talks on the remote working strategies that work for them and some of the benefits of having a remote team, before answering your questions on remote work and working from home. What tools are available to help teams collaborate? How do you separate work and home life? And just how important is it to have a producer?
