|Session Name:||Indie Voltron: Building a Development Collective|
|Speaker(s):||Teddy Diefenbach, Benjamin Esposito, Sam Farmer, Akira Thompson, Asher Vollmer|
|Company Name(s):||Heart Machine, Little Flag, Independent, RainBros, Independent|
|Track / Format:||Community|
|Overview:||Small development teams don't have access on their own to the same resources as large companies. By banding together with other developers they can amplify their reach, expand their resources, and find new collaborators. However, along with its benefits, creating a larger entity comes with its share of complications and challenges. Building an inclusive, productive community is difficult, and the lines between collective and clique can become blurry to outsiders as well as members of the group. Members of LA's Glitch City collective and workspace discuss their failures and successes growing from disparate groups of friends to a large community.|
