Indie Conference: July 2016
This month we've got updates from /dev/world, IndieCade Festival, the Life / Time / Value Conference, and a video from Rachel Andrew on how to make time for yourself while working on your indie projects...
New Conference Updates
/dev/world is happening again on 29 - 31 August, 2016 over in Melbourne, Australia. It's a conference for Mac & iOS developers, organized by the Apple University Consortium and held at RMIT (Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology). Early bird ticket sales close on July 25.
IndieCade Festival has been announced for 14 - 16 October in Los Angeles. IndieCade features games from independent video game developers from around the world.
LTV Conference: New to the list (but too late for the last newsletter), the "Life, Time, Value" conference is for people selling their own products - whether software, writing, videos, music or other digital products. Speakers included Rachel Andrew, Patrick McKenzie and Alex Hillman. One to watch for next year!

Making Time For Your Project, Leaving Time For You
From Release Notes 2015. Rachel Andrew talks about how she manages to launch products and get them out there, while also running a small business, training for a half marathon & keeping her family home from looking like an episode of Hoarders.
