Game Camp videos posted to YouTube

without comments

The videos from the Game Camp sessions are now posted on YouTube.

Special note: I was slightly drunk when I gave my second talk (optimizing the dev process), and moderately drunk by the time the panel started. Not my fault! People kept buying me drinks! Maybe that biased me, but I think the people I met at Game Camp were among the coolest and friendliest I’ve met at any game conference. :)

Slides from Game Camp

with 6 comments

What a fun event! Definitely one of the best I’ve been too, everyone was so friendly. They even got me a bottle of tequila and a lemon (ha ha) which I’ll be working on as we travel to Copenhagen today.

As promised, I’m posting my slides. PowerPoint 2007 and PDF format are available at my Googlepages site on my Publications page. Which reminds me, I really have to find a better host than Googlepages. Also have to migrate all that old stuff from my Drizzle site as well. So much to do, so little likelihood that I’ll get to it…

Anyway here are direct links to the files:

I’m pretty happy with how the keynote went but the Development talk was a mess. I think the slides have some pretty good material in them, though. The couple of beers I had before the talk might have been a little too much. Same as writing code – one drink helps (lubricates the neurons), but two drinks can only hurt. Ah well.

Speaking at Game Camp in Oslo, Norway

with one comment

It looks like the schedule is up on the Game Camp page. This is a recurring local game dev conference in Oslo that my friend Dan Strandberg co-hosts. Dan and I met way back in the Dungeon Siege days and have kept up ever since. He asked me to fly out and do the keynote, which I’m looking forward to (I wonder if they have tequila in Norway). I’ll also be doing a tech talk on development process, and will be on the panel at the end of the day. I’ll post slides here after the conference. After we visit Copenhagen and Stockholm, that is!
