devcom Indie Developer Night
Taking place on Tuesday, devcom Indie Developer Night brings the #ddc2022 conference part to an end and paves the way for everything happening during gamescom.
This is the perfect chance not only to participate in one of the week’s best parties, but also to enjoy it with our developer community and to connect with professionals from the industry.
On Monday, August 22, and Tuesday, August 23, we invite you to join the devcom Run Club: join us for a jogging tour around Cologne for a fresh and dynamic start into a long conference day. (Well, then maybe don’t party too hard the nights before!)
We will meet in front of the Bahnhof Köln Messe/Deutz Bahnhof (Cologne trade fair/Deutz train station) to ensure everyone has easy access to train and bus, and make our way down to the river Rhine from there. (Lap length: 1.6km / 1mile)
