devcom Charity Fundraiser 2020

devcom stands for equal, liberal and cosmopolitan cooperation and we firmly believe that together we can change this world for the better. Every one of us, every day – but also all of us together, at any time.

So, our team members got together and selected projects on betterplace.org that they want to support personally, and that they think will help us to achieve exactly this goal: to make the world a better place.

We would be very happy and grateful for your support which you can show by donating to the projects we’ve selected. We’re doing this too: as a team, we’re supporting the projects listed here with a donation of 500 €.

Insomniac Games

devcom was a great experience. I was able to speak with developers not only from all over Europe, but from all over the world.
It truly was a global community coming together to share ideas, perspectives, experiences and technology.

Don Daglow

Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences Foundation

devcom is a place where we get to discuss making great games and meet great new people, and one of my favorite events on the calendar.

Svyatoslav Torik

Wargaming.net

I’ve been to all kind of conferences, small and large, and I find that devcom attendance rate suits me best.
I met exactly as many new people as I expected, I received different kinds of positive feedback to my session, and I personally liked what I experienced at devcom.

Kate Edwards

devcom has quickly become one of the must-attend game industry events in Europe, and I’m really looking forward to seeing how it continues to grow and serve the global community of game creators!

Dan Bernardo

Playtra Games

devcom was, no doubt, an incredible experience.
As a speaker and a developer, I had a great time learning from the top talents of the game industry.

Antonia Koop

devcom was truly an event for the creators: an opportunity to inspire and get inspired, explore and discover, and to have those challenging discussions that drive us forward as a creative industry.

Mark Barlet

The AbleGamers

I was excited to see such a receptive audience who wanted to learn about how to support players with disabilities.
The conversations and contacts I made while at devcom will bear fruit for years to come.

devcom is a valuable, well-managed extension of gamescom that would be relevant for any developer, publisher, or industry professional looking to create partnerships.
