Overview: Intended for tech artists and tools developers joining a new team or learning an established pipeline/content tools code base that is in development. This is not a talk about establishing a pipeline from scratch, it's about learning an existing one as thoroughly and efficiently as possible, and setting everyone up for success now and in the future while you learn. This session will help you gauge the scope of on-boarding, explore common entry points and debugging principles to solve problems efficiently. It will share some helpful hints on speeding up the learning process and directing your efforts towards low friction/high reward tasks. Ross Patel will explore the value of content validation, using flow-charts to visualize and organize, as they pertain to learning and contributing to the pipeline and workflow code base.
