Title: Programming for game development
Facilitator: Danny Day
About the talk: I meet a lot of programmers that started out because they wanted to make games. Very few of them end up making games. I did. I’d like to talk about the assumptions that get in the way and what the local industry looks like for hobbyists and professionals alike.
About the facilitator: Danny has been professionally developing games for 14 years, run a local studio for 11, and accidentally started and ran a local game development community that evolved into our national industry body. Chances are reasonably high that he’s met your game development heros.
