Session Name: You Don't Need a Degree to Make Video Games
Speaker(s): Conan Bourke
Company Name(s): AIE
Track / Format: Game Career Seminar
Overview: Most schools in the country now offer degrees in game design, game development, or some related, alleged discipline. The bald fact of the matter is that you do not need a degree to create and ship sound, fun video games. This presentation focuses on the truth about what companies are looking for as opposed to what for-profit academic institutions are telling students they are supposed to know to get into the industry.
