It's Monday, you've probably still not caught up with all of the weekend emails, so let's cut to the chase. The latest additions who will be sharing their invaluable insight (and enjoying the Californian sunshine) during June 27th to 28th are:

  • Mike Pagano, Built Games

Joining them are many more of their contemporaries, whom we'll continue to unveil regularly over the next few weeks whle simultaneously diving more deeply into the content side of things.

If all the above has got you inspired, however, know that we're still accepting speaker submissions. But, like the soon-to-be-over Super Early Bird ticket rates, better grab the opportunity while it's still available. They say all good things come to an end for a reason…
