Where to learn more about Twitch during GDC 2018

We are getting closer to our favorite week in San Francisco, when the city transforms into a game developer mecca thanks to GDC! Our Twitch Developer team couldn’t be more excited to join many of you and geek out at the world’s largest developer game industry event.

We’ve had an exciting year launching Extensions, and bringing new APIs and features to the developer community. If you plan to attend, come find us at one of the many activities listed below and let’s work together to make your development with Twitch awesome.

Below is our rundown for the week.

Twitch HQ Workshop

Come join us at Twitch HQ on Monday, March 19 for an evening hands-on workshop. You’ll hear from our new VP of Developer Experience Amir Shevat and VP of Developer Relations Kathy Astromoff about what we’re working on and our future roadmap. Then you get to do what you do best–build! Developer Advocate Emily Rose will lead the workshop and additional members of the TwitchDev team will be present to help build an Extension. Space is limited–register here.
