Does anyone know when the next game programming convention is going to be in either the greater Philadelphia PA or New Jersey / New York metro areas? I'd really be interested in attending one if they have things like programming contests in them, or clinics for game programming, things of that nature. Anyone have any info? Thanks for your time. -slippers2k

There hasn't been a conference out here for the past oh... 6 years or so? The last attempt was a version of the GDC here on the east coast in NYC. They ended up losing more money on it than they made so they didn't do it again. The number of developers has definetly grown though, so maybe someday we'll have a conference in NYC again. I've been a part of several initiatives to hold some sort of mini-conference somewhere on the east coast, but nothing ever came of them. The demand just isn't there yet. We have a lot more companies, but very few are big time (BHG down in MD, and a couple studios in Boston) and unlike in Texas, where they have a lot of schools with game dev programs, besides Full Sail in Florida not a lot of east coast schools offer game dev degrees. Though some are starting to. I'd say give it a few more years.
