This year I went to the Game Developer’s Conference, held every year in San Francisco (usually sometime in March). I have written about my impression of the conference here. The short version is it was both inspiring and depressing. So this post is just a link to some photos and interesting points.
In 40 years I have never seen anyone defecate on the street. A claim I can no longer make after a week in San Francisco – I have now seen it twice. I will definitely stay in a better area of the city next time I go.
Apple laptops were everywhere, spotting a PC laptop was quite a rare occurrence. Surface tablets were about as common as iPads, and Android phones outnumbered iPhones.
A couple of speakers espoused taking your own path in indie game development and being original, but were introduced as having worked on anodyne AAA games.
