Connect with the Twitch team at GDC

Twitch is heading to the Game Developers Conference (GDC) next week! We couldn’t be more excited to join the many thousands of game developers for a week of geeking out at the world’s largest, longest-running, professionals-only game industry event.

We’ve had a solid last year working with game developers and bringing new APIs and features to the developer community. We kicked off 2017 with the Clips Discovery API and now Drops just this week, and we have a lot more to share. Stay tuned for some awesome announcements during the week of GDC.

If you plan on being one of the more than 30,000 attendees (wow!) next week, be sure to stop by our booth to meet the team and come hear our sessions at the conference.

Where to find us

Find us in the GDC Main Hall at booth #1602. When you visit our booth, there will be cool ways to learn more about Twitch and earn swag. Check out our schedule below.

Watch us on Twitch

If you can’t join in person, we are streaming live from GDC via our new Twitch Developer Channel Page.
