Overview: For game developers who interact with the Internet over their games and views, simply doing your work comes with a price. Harassment, abuse and threats have all been part of the industry landscape for years for those making online games - and now for pretty much any kind of online interaction. In this talk, Elizabeth Sampat, Zoe Quinn, Neha Nair and Donna "Danicia" Prior, will tell you what they've learned from their interactions with the harshest online elements: what steps to take, how to mitigate damage, and survive - logistically and emotionally. No one should have to go through this, and no one should have to go through it alone.
