GDC 2011 Wrapup

So, GDC 2011 was fantastic. Really, truly fantastic, on an industry, discipline, and personal level.

This was the largest GDC yet, with something like 18,000 attendees and 600+ speakers.

Our Tech Art Bootcamp was a huge success. Almost filled room from 10am to 6pm on Tuesday. Incredible. The Tech Art Roundtables were packed every day, and the Tech Animator Roundtables seemed to go better than last year.

I think my speech, entitled “Ending the Culture War: Uniting Tech Art and Engineering to Create a Better Pipeline” went incredibly well. Not a repeat of last year’s disastrous presentation.

Going forward:
I’ll get the bootcamp slides up this week.
I’m going to be posting about some of the trends I’ve noticed and challenges we’re facing as a discipline. will be moving into the mobile/social age soon with some much needed site improvements.
