The 2010 Game Developers Conference welcomed 18,250 industry professionals, many of whom also moonlighted as alcohol professionals during the evenings, to San Francisco's Moscone Convention Center for another round of the annual meet-up. The record number surpassed last year's total of 17,000 attendees.
Next year's show is already set to be tapped on February 28, 2011. A call for lecture submissions will go out sometime this summer. In the meantime, you can join the GDC circuit party and get your multi-core binary integration theory groove on at GDC Canada, May 6–7, in Vancouver.
