Overview: Going indie immediately after school can be fantastic, but it can also leave you in the poorhouse with bills to pay! This lecture can't help with that part, but it can give you testimonials from three people who succeeded after (and during) college in different ways, with nods to their failures as well. Ted DiNola (Oculus, Funomena), Asher Vollmer (Threes, Puzzlejuice), and Jenny Jiao Hsia (Beglitched)will share with you how they managed to make the transition.
