The Number One Educational Resource for the Game Industry

Session Name:

Healthy Habits of a Successful Game Maker


Unsure of the first steps to take in your games career? Hear from a recent grad who has held positions at two of the top companies in the industry, Zynga and 2K Games, the unique path that led to her success and the steps that she took to get there. As a job seeker, you may be concerned with the task of "breaking into" the industry; however, what is more important (and which will aid you in being a competitive candidate) is practicing the traits and habits of a great game maker. This talk will go over the practices that helped this speaker launch her career, and which, if implemented, will aid attendees in doing the same, and in honing their skills as developers.
