All Bar One – Guildford – 17.03.2017

GUILD FOR DEVELOPERS

THE EVENT

Guild for Developers is a social occasion designed to help you connect with everyone in Guildford and the UK. It’s a chance to catch up with old colleagues, share knowledge, get drunk and meet your local development heroes. Guildford’s already great, let’s see if we can take it to the next level.

ENJOY FOOD & DRINKS ON US

That’s right, there will be no speakers to listen to and no drinks that need to be purchased. If you’d like to be known as the ‘nice people that got the beers in’ next time, mail us here about putting a few quid behind the bar.

MEET OLD FRIENDS. MAKE NEW ONES

We reckon Guildford’s got the highest population density of game industry veterans in all of Europe. You’ll probably bump into a few along with a load of interesting new faces, not only from games but also digital media and gambling companies. If you know someone who should get an invite, let us know.

GET YOUR FINGER ON THE PULSE

At future events, GFD will be a platform for local developers to show off their new games to all attending. If you’d like to get your game in front of the GFD community, let us know

BE A PART OF SOMETHING SPECIAL

GFD is here to connect and strengthen the digital industries but we can’t do it without you. Help us out by coming along regularly, having a good time & spreading the word.

What’s all this then?

Community. It’s a word that rings around a development studio now like never before. The digital revolution has seen you all moderating and engaging with online groups of your most passionate users and we think that’s great. They deserve that recognition. They deserve acknowledgement for the time they invest in the experiences you work so hard to create for them.

The thing is, at Testology we don’t develop digital experiences. We test them. Community means something a little different to us. Our community is a collection of the clients from all media industries that have kept our doors open for 10 years and allowed us to keep on doing what we love for a living. Our community is the area we live in and all the characters that share the first two letters of our postcode.

Guild For Developers is a celebration of the ridiculously significant digital development community in Guildford and the UK. You’ve all been so busy crafting unforgettable experiences for the public that you forgot to think about doing something for yourselves. That’s where GFD comes in.

FAMILIAR FACES

There’s nothing that says community more than a familiar face or two. And community is something at the heart of GFD events. At each event you’ll notice a good few familiar faces. Feel free to say hello and mingle with them. It’s very likely they’ll know someone who you don’t, so a resulting introduction could be a great outcome. And, at the very least, a beer or cocktail with great company!

frequently asked questions

What time does the event start?

GFD always kicks off at 7pm.

Are the drinks free?

Very free, thanks to our lovely sponsors.

Can I bring my game along?

Definitely! We haven’t got room for a full build arcade cab or anything but, mobile devices work a treat for showing off your latest project.

What time does the event finish?

All Bar One normally kick out the most dedicated of us, around 1am.

How many people will be there?

Over 130 last time! More people than you could speak to in one evening, we reckon.

Can I sponsor the event?

You sure can! There’s info about the benefits our sponsors receive right here

Is there anywhere to park?

There might be but, drinking and driving is very ill-advised.

How do I sign up?

GFD is getting more and more over-subscribed each time. Submit a request for a spot on the guest list below.

How often is GFD held?

Once every three months, with the possibility of some mini events running in-between.
