I used to dream about how one day I would be able to make a game like Halo. I remember when I got my first computer out of the dumpster (yes, I was that dedicated!) and plugged it in at home, excited to start building my version of one of the best games of all time.

We discuss this and many other game-development-unique approaches in my interactive workshops. I invite you to bring your questions or challenges to discuss. We'll share what many studios have discovered through experimentation and practices that were captured in my more recent book: Gear up! Advanced Game Development Practices. Typical areas of discussion include: Truly … [Read more...] about Why a “Scrum for Video Game Development” Course?
