Game Career Seminar: QA Career Path: Evolution from an Industry Entry Point


Quality assurance has long been viewed as an entry point into the game industry. Due to this, many entry-level professionals attempt to get a job in QA in order to transfer to other disciplines. However, QA is not merely a starting point in the industry - it has its own goals, benefits, and unique impact on a game's production. A full career can be started and nourished in QA, and it can be a fulfilling career path on its own. nnThis talk outlines the unique impact QA has on game development and provides many compelling reasons to consider a game career in QA. Within the context of their combined 8 years in the QA field, Bryce Broadrick (Bungie Test Engineer) and Christopher Rios (Bungie Test Lead) explore these different benefits of a career in QA and present a comprehensive guide on how to break into the field.
