Description: video game development is fraught with unknowns, 'what ifs,' and high cost risks. A solid development process and well researched pre-production stage can mitigate a lot of potential pitfalls that would only show themselves later on in the project. This talk will go over a variety of best practices and case studies - from iteration techniques to the technical considerations for effective pipelines integration and beyond - all of which can be easily adapted for teams and studios of any size. The session will round off with practical tips and tricks to get you started on the right foot.
Targeted public: no prerequisites required! This talk is geared towards folks who will be working on the technical aspects of their project both in pre-production and throughout the rest of development. Especially useful for indies and startups
