Session Name:

Independent Games Summit: What [Blank] Taught Me About Game Dev


Game developers have learned their craft from classes, mentors, and projects but what about the lessons learned from places and jobs that seemingly have nothing to do with games? How could developers of all disciplines incorporate new techniques and perspectives from other walks of life, and what is the value of entering the game industry after working a different career? "What [Blank] Taught Me About Game Dev" is a series of micro-talks where panelists share their biggest game development takeaways from their non-games related jobs, personal journeys, and more.
