At the 10.09. – 11.09.2015 was DevGAMM Conference 2015 in Grand Elysee Hotel in Hamburg.
DevGAMM was founded in 2008 by Lerika Mallayeva, who at the time worked as a flash animator in the indie studio. The first event then called FlashGAMM gathered around 100 developers interested in Flash technologies and appeared a great success. Lerika Mallayeva started the conference in 2008 because she was an indie game developer tring to find ways to contact publishers, potential partners, and to get an idea of what is happening in the industry.
Science then it grew to become the leading gamedev event in Russia, Ukraine and Belarus.
In 2009 FlashGAMM lined up with Absolutist company and reached more than 800 people. That was a huge achievement for CIS event. In 2013 it became obvious that Flash could no longer be the sole focus of the conference and FlashGAMM had to go through a transition period that led to a new name (DevGAMM) and acquisition by the US-based game publisher Renatus Media.
The goal has always been to make the most productive event in the games industry. Everything from the content to Speed Game Dating, the Showcase is designed to make your time at DevGAMM worth it.
2015 has been both the most challengin and the most amazing year so far. DevGAMM Moscow conference was a huge accomplishment with 1500 people attending. The atmosphere, the reception and the most important-attendee`s feedback were so good that they motivated to aim higher.
Hosting a European event was dream for a long time. Finally were able to pull off DevGAMM and here to be are. The hope is this conference was a bridge between Eastern and Western European game development communities.
