Let's kick off another great year of GameU! The way games get made is constantly evolving. To get started we'll bring everyone onto the same page with a practical discussion about which classic advice still holds true as ever, which has fallen somewhat out of date in light of technology or developer culture, and what are some seemingly new ways that people are getting their start. This won't be a technical talk, but will include pros and cons for several programming language options to help attendees find one that works for them. Similarly this isn't specifically an art talk, but we'll discuss changing trends, techniques, and tools in indie game development that can help you fill in your game's art needs with greater confidence. We'll discuss sustainable strategies and process for working your way into the indie game ecosystem in a way that maximizes your learning and positioning without taking on undue financial risk.
