Steam Developer Days occurs on 1/15/2014 and 1/16/2014.
During January of 2014, Valve will be hosting a special two day conference. This conference, called the Steam Developer Days, will be showing off Valve’s Steam Machines, as well as allow those in attendance to test these machines out, complete with a controller.
In addition, there will be several speakers from companies such as AMD and Nvidia. Unfortunately, most of us will be unable to attend, as the event is exclusive; Valve will not allow average gamers or press into it. Said Valve, “Steam Dev Days is a two-day game developers’ conference where professionals can meet in a relaxed, off the record environment. Developers will share their design and industry expertise, participate in roundtable discussions and attend lectures by industry veterans on topics ranging from game economies to VR, Linux/OpenGL, user-generated content and more. Developers will also have direct access to Valve’s Steam Team, and will be given a chance to test-drive and provide feedback on Steam OS, prototype Steam Machines and Steam Controllers.”
