IGDA DC is the Washinton D.C Chapter of the International Game Developer's Association, the professional association for over 12,0000 video game developers worldwide.

We hold monthly in person and online meetups and working sessions for professional development. We also host District Arcade, a yearly in person event where developers can demo their games to the public.
