Game & Mobile Developers, ACE and more

Hi again... 

I hope the spring is treating everyone well.  

A couple of topics/opportunities that might be of interest:

First, our Rio Grande IGDA chapter is putting together a booth for the upcoming Albuquerque Comic Expo - want to buy in?

Do you like comics? Do you make games? Would you like to be part of a booth to show off your games? Well the Rio Grande IGDA has you covered! This year we would like to have a booth to show off Albuquerque's Greatest Game Developers at the Albuquerque Comic Expo! If you'd like to get a spot contact Ryan Leonski either here on facebook or at Please contact before Friday May 20th!

Second, the NM Tech Council is working with Santa Fe MIX, AIGA NM, the Santa Fe Complex and others to launch the region's first Mobile Apps Challenge and Jam to create mobile applications that will serve the Santa Fe and larger community.  There are Thousands of $$$ and other prizes available for talented developers.  Read more at and sign up for the jam at:
