In September 2017, Anita Cavaleiro and I presented a talk about indie dev meetups in Brazil at the Indie Interfaces conference at Concordia University in Montréal. More info about that event can be found here.
From 2015 to 2017, indie/camp was a monthly meetup of indie game creators, students and people interested in games in the region of Campinas, São Paulo. It happened at Sesc Campinas and hosted a series of talks and workshops. I co-organized the event for its first set of months together with Anita Cavaleiro, who was its main organizer. I also hosted the talk about alternative controllers (gif above) in the December 2016 edition. The online community of the event can be found here.
In April 2016, I presented the talk A critical analysis of the Brazilian independent games scene about how the independent games scene is configured in Brazil at the Different Games 2016 event at the NYU Magnet. It was a great opportunity to play interesting games and to get to know other researchers and game makers in an event focused on diversity and inclusion.
