Silver Developers & Gamers

April 17 at 3:15 pm - 4:15 pm

Room: 306B

By Robin Koman

Join us for a discussion on the issues of ageism in the game industry. The round-table will address topics including studio and educational institution culture, the wisdom older developers have to offer to the development process and how to build receptivity for it, designing content for silver gamers (particularly female silver gamers), and recruiting seniors for game testing, among other topics. The goal of this roundtable is to get people talking about age as a diversity issue within the industry, with particular attention paid to the experience of women, to support those who may have experienced ageism, and to celebrate the elders within game development. Participants will get a raised awareness in the benefits that older developers bring to the game creation process, as well as issues that older people face in the work place and tips on how to overcome those issues. There will also be interesting insights into designing for silver gamers.
