Topic: Advocacy

Format: Roundtable

Vault Recording: Not Recorded

Who deserves credit? How is credit applied? Where do credits appear? What is the process for managing credits? Hosted by the IGDA Developer Credit SIG, this roundtable will explore questions about credit standards, from adoption of credit guidelines to crowd-sourcing supplemental credit records when the workplace falls short. Developers will be asked to identify obstacles to adoption and how you can achieve greater awareness of existing standards. Attendees will discuss potential issues with supplemental credits, such as: qualifications to submit credits, ethics requirements, verification process, and display status of credits online.


Attendees will collectively determine the actions needed to increase awareness and adoption of credit standards, and contingencies for dealing with obstacles.

Intended Audience

Anyone with an interest in preserving honest records of work without the influence of office politics should attend. Prerequisite knowledge is not needed. If you are good at finding a human story and connecting people and influencers for a good cause, your skills can help.
