We are extremely excited to announce that Warren Spector, Studio Director for OtherSide Entertainment, will be the Kickoff Session speaker for PAX Dev 2017! Warren is probably best known for his work Deus Ex and Disney Epic Mickey, but he brings 30+ years of gaming industry expertise to the event plus a wealth of knowledge of working in various roles on numerous IPs. Please join us as Warren kicks off the 7th PAX Dev with what is sure to be an amazing and informative talk.

The PAX Dev 2017 content schedule is now live. Please make sure to head over to to check out all of the impressive sessions and speakers for both days. It’s shaping up to be one of the best.

You might notice the opening session is missing at the moment. That’s because we have a special guest that we want to announce next week who will be opening the show so be sure to check back soon.

Badges for PAX Dev are now on sale and panel submissions are open!

If you are a game developer who interested in conversing and creating with fellow devs in a secure, press-free environment, you might want to consider attending PAX Dev. Badges are now officially on sale:

If you have an idea for a talk that would resonate with the developer community, we’ve also opened panel submissions. These will be accepted on a rolling basis, so it’s encouraged to submit early. The sooner you submit the idea for your talk the better your chances on being accepted. You can enter all your panel session information here:

It’s also worth noting that we slightly changed PAX Dev this year - it will take place on the Tuesday and Wednesday during the week leading up to PAX West. We made this change because there are a lot of people who are going to both events, which is great, but on Thursday they might have competing obligations with finishing Dev and getting ready for West. With the subtle shift back a day, it allows a gap for people to adjust between shows. We think it will help with ability to attend both shows and get sorted.
