Talk Workshop : Every few months I organize a small (free!) workshop for people who would like to give a talk in the future (e.g. about game dev) but perhaps don’t quite have the heart yet or don’t know exactly how to do it or where to start.  The workshop is intended to encourage more people from underrepresented groups to give talks, but everyone is welcome register. Registration
