This talk will present six invaluable lessons that he's learned about audio programming. Beginning with the very basics of how a speaker works and how audio is represented in the machine, the talk will quickly move on to descriptions of some advanced audio mixing features, as well as tips for working with sound designers. You will learn the biggest, best, one-word secret for interacting effectively with sound designers. We will also bootstrap an audio engine from the ground up - with source code! Along the way, you'll hear stories from the development of a number of shipped game titles and find out what the first lines of code are that Guy writes in any audio engine.|
