Overview: Have you ever bumped into another developer and noticed they're using a code snippet, tool or plugin that you feel like you could've used a million times? Are tool-discussions your favorite part of postmortems? In this collection of technical microtalks, each speaker will take you through one of their homemade tools, solutions, or hacks that could benefit or inspire you. The Tech Toolbox presents interesting solutions to interesting problems, or bits of tech that create new affordances in game design from a broad set of independent developer perspectives.
