Steam Dev Days Are In 2 Weeks; SteamOS/Linux Will Be Talked About

Coming up in two weeks marks the return of Steam Dev Days. Linux and SteamOS gaming will be talked about there, but so far no indications of Steam Machines.

The 2016 Steam Dev Days are taking place from 12 to 13 October in Seattle at the Washington State Convention Center. How Valve describes this year's event, "Steam Dev Days returns to Seattle this October. Join Valve and your fellow Steam developers to learn about and discuss new Steam features and advances in gaming on Windows, macOS, Linux and SteamOS."

It's good to see SteamOS and Linux continue to be promoted by Valve. Of the talks listed so far, the only seemingly Linux-related one is by Unity Technologies on building Unity games for Linux/SteamOS.

Interestingly, as pointed out in our forums this morning, there are no published talks so far of "Steam Machines" or any references on their site yet to "Steam Machines." It's been a while since last hearing anything promising about Steam Machines from Valve or their partners.

Other talks for Steam Dev Days 2016 focus on VR, video content, Steam Early Access, and other fundamental game topics.
