The roaming Intel Buzz workshop, the one-of-a-kind gaming event for indie developers, is coming to Los Angeles, California, at the new Technicolor Experience Center on November 9th. (It’s also being live streamed; see below.)

Tickets are just $10 for the entire day, which is packed with talks, panels and networking with leading industry experts. You’ll see Raph Koster, widely known as the lead designer of Ultima Online and the creative director behind Star Wars Galaxies, plus executives from Oculus, Intel, Technicolor, Otoy, Survios, Confetti and more. Tickets also include the evening Indie Game Showcase reception.

Networking is essential for indie game success, and the Intel Buzz workshop offers a full day to find support and swap ideas and strategies on everything from code and marketing to player outreach and figuring out where you’re going next. Sponsored by Intel and hosted by the local indie dev community, the conference lets you get on the floor and swap business cards with speakers from the industry giants and local peers from the indie game scene.
