Wes Ehrlichman has been helping to grow the game development community in St. Louis since 2009. In that time he has played a part in organizing 13 St. Louis Game Jams and over 150 St. Louis Game Developer Meetups. He has over 10 years of development experience as an agile software developer at World Wide Technology Asynchrony Labs. In 2015 Wes joined forces with other local game development leaders to form the non-profit St. Louis Game Developer Co-op to support local game developers. His guiding belief is that by finding new voices in games and growing local game development we will improve our community and expand the definition of what games can be.
