Roguelike Conference

I'd guess anyone who'd want to go to this probably already knows about it, but just in case, I just saw on another forum that there's a 1-day roguelike conference in San Francisco in September, with some of the original developers of Rogue, the Brogue guy, Dwarf Fortress guys, DCSS, CoQ, etc...

This is now tomorrow. d_m and myshkin are flying the flag for Angband; see here for the schedule.

It looks really awesome, and I wish I could be there.

Got my ticket; anyone else going? Barring some last minute disaster, I'll be the old fat balding white guy in the black shirt with the NASA logo

I think I'm going to go too. Haven't picked out my outfit yet though. I'm sure I'll be the only 40 something dude there

I feel like everyone should add their various forum names to their nametags.

e: seems like they are sold out, but it looks like there will be a stream.

That may not be enough information to distinguish you.

I'm sure the first half will describe %75 of the attendees, but I'm hoping the NASA logo shirt will be rare

Just listened to the twitch stream- nice job guys! A lot to summarize in a short time. Between this and the Roguelike Radio interview from a few years ago I think it gives a good picture of how the game is changing and why.

Makes me want to say a big Thank You again for all the work you and other devs have done over the last 10 years!

I can't watch the afternoon talks, so hopefully these are being recorded for posterity?

If it's on twitch, I'm assuming there will be an archive! Looking forward to seeing it.

Have just watched the talk on replay on twitch; this is the whole session, the Angband talk starts at 1:50:00 (thanks debo for finding it for me).

It is a really great summary of the trends in Angband over the last ten years from the devteam's point of view. Excellent job by myshkin and d_m to (a) actually get organised to be there and (b) give such an interesting and faithful account. Loved the reference to this thread.

Well done guys!
