GDC to run 'bootcamps' for iOS developers, animators and producers

The Game Developers Conference in San Francisco this year will run three all-day "bootcamps" led by industry professionals to give attendees a crash course in iOS game development, game animation and production.

The all-day events will run on Monday to Tuesday, March 25 to 26 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. The first of the events is an "iOS games in a day" bootcamp that will include lessons on Cocos2D, openGL and Unity 3D. There will also be lectures on popular and essential iOS APIs for games, and "a deep dive on game architecture selection and best practices."

The second bootcamp is dedicated to animation and will be presented by animators from 5th Cell, Warner Bros. Games, ZeniMax Online and Dreamworks.

The third bootcamp is for producers, and will "focus on key skills needed of seasoned veterans and newcomers to ship mobile, console, PC and web games." Speakers will include developers from Irrational Games, Epic Games Seattle, Media Molecule and more.

Registration for GDC 2013 is now open.
