We’ve got two tickets for the next AlterConf event in San Francisco, CA on June 4th! We have two tickets which include admission, lunch and child care (if needed). AlterConf is an amazing day of talks by folks from a wide variety experiences.

To claim a ticket, email us at whyineeddiversegames@gmail.com or @ us on Twitter: @INeedDivGms

Check out the amazing speaker line up!

Full schedule under the cut. If you can help out AlterConf with a donationdonation, or sponsorship of tickets, lunch or other costs, please do so. AlterConf provides a space for many to speak at tech events that normally wouldn’t get a chance to have their voice heard. They turn no profit from these events, and all money goes back to the speakers, artists, videographers and others.

Thank you to AlterConf for the donation of tickets so #INeedDiverseGames community members can attend this great event!
