BCON 2022

Blender Conference 2022

After a short hiatus, Blender Conference returned to Amsterdam this year with great success.  Blender Market was a sponsor of the event and many of us were there to share our passion and love of Blender.  

Beyond hosting a table we also hosted a SIG for Blender Market Creators as well as a podcast and several talks by the greater Blender Market and CG Cookie family.

If you were not able to attend, you can watch the entire conference on the Blender YouTube channel because in classic Blender fashion they have made the entire conference available for everyone.   

Listen to the Blender Live Podcasts

You can also listen in on the podcasts here We would like to invite you to this podcast in particular:  Building Blender Products, hosted by Jonathan Williamson, co-founder of Blender Market speaking with Creators you know as TrueVFX and polygoniq.  Learn who the people are behind the products and finally solve the mystery of how to pronounce polygoniq.  This is truly great insight on what life is like as a creator on Blender Market.

Learn Blender Development

If you are interested in learning Blender development, we recommend this workshop from Jason van Gumster and Dr. Jon Denning from CG Cookie, the Blender Market umbrella company and the new branch company Orange Turbine.
