Session Name:

The Art of (Self) Reinvention in the Games Industry


If you're committed to a career in games, how do you deal with all the changes in your business? The industry's evolution has been gradual in some eras, and chaotic and revolutionary in others. Today's challenges and opportunities are so different from those of ten years ago that many time-travelers from that era could struggle to find a job. What does that mean for those working in games today? Don Daglow has held leadership positions on projects on every console generation from the first Atari-Intellivision "console wars" to today, and advises teams on every major modern hardware platform. In this session he'll share stories of how game creators have had to re-invent themselves in the past, and ideas on how they can maintain the joy and fulfillment of their craft as they prepare to re-invent themselves for the future.
