Session Name Using Technical Testers to Reduce Cost and Improve Quality in Your Titles
Speaker(s) Greg Derk
Company Name(s) Microsoft - Turn10 Studios
Track / Format Production
Overview

Games and game development are increasingly complex beasts. Engineers, artists and designers have had to become more technical and specialized to keep up with the demands of modern game development. Contrary to this trend, tester skill sets have remained largely unchanged, leaving test teams less equipped to handle today's titles. Over the past several versions of Forza Motorsport, Turn 10 Studios has made a conscious effort to improve tester skill sets by hiring technical testers in place of traditional test staff. This talk will discuss these technical testers and use bug/production data from the past few versions to show the impact they have had to the studio.
