Greetings from the Silicon Valley IGDA chapter. The IGDA is dedicated to improving developer lives through community, professional development, advocacy and fun. Email here to contact.
Right now the best way to keep up with us is with our new Meetup Group
We also have a Linked In , Google Group , and somewhat neglected Facebook group and a much, much larger mailing list which collects all the different people from different events and lately, conferences.
