MIGS And East Coast Dev Tour Schedule

By Chance Ivey

Epic Games is on the way to the Montreal International Games Summit (MIGS) once again. Senior Developer Relations Technical Artist Zak Parrish will provide an introduction to Unreal Engine 4 in Room 521 on Nov. 10 at 1:30 PM in his session. UX Manager Celia Hodent will lead a session on how Epic is utilizing UX best practices in Fortnite’s development in Room 520C on Nov. 10 at 5:15 PM. We’ll also have a booth (#23), so drop by to say hello if you’ll be there!

Following the show, we’re kicking off our East Coast Dev Tour with an event in Montreal on Nov. 12 and heading to Boston on Nov. 14.
