|Overview:||When Niel Widy began working on SolarBlack at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, it was little more than a dream. Something to occupy the newly available at-home time between his full-time job and something that could tie his other passions of creating art, music, and programming into a sort of COVID opus. Two years later, SolarBlack has launched globally on multiple major platforms, and has found backing from a VR publisher. In this talk, Niel shares what that two-year journey looked like for him as a teacher in Austria. He will discuss the skills that helped him find success with SolarBlackeven those he didn't possessas well as what went right, what went wrong, and lots of things he wishes someone had told him before he started.|
