You’ll be using the MVC Design Pattern in the web application micro-framework Sinatra. Introductory programming class to learn Object-Oriented Programming, a must-have. You will learn the most effective monetization strategies for your game, how to keep your.
The reality is many have worked as developers without applicable mentoring and management and an entire generation of software developers are now influencing the next generation. Historically, the rigidness of the traditional waterfall approach to the software development lifecycle instills a number of key principles that agile only environments have not fostered or understood. It is unfortunate that engineering managers are not constantly focussed on process and productivity improvements for sustaining software for the entire lifecycle of a product.
This agent is the intelligence that knows the specific syntax and version needs to perform the tasks. The agent is also the communication mechanism between Trove and the running nova instance. Trove specifically leverages several other OpenStack services for source image and instance management. Each trove guest image includes a base operating system, the applicable database software and a database technology specific trove guest agent.
I can understand the long-term rationale view here, but I see it as a clear limitation for more rapid adoption. 7 is an adoption impediment. Only offering MySQL 5. This requires any organization with applications that are not greenfield to have already migrated to MySQL 5.
One common way to split a game across threads is along domain boundaries — run AI on one core, sound on another, rendering on a third, etc. While coupling like this sucks in any game, it’s even worse on modern games that use concurrency. On multi-core hardware, it’s vital that code is running on multiple threads simultaneously.
Function pointers are stateless, functors are weird and still require defining a class, and the lambdas in C++11 are tricky to work with because of manual memory management. I wrote the examples this way because C++ has pretty limited support for first-class functions.
Pedro: What do you think, Eve. Eve: For what purpose. Pedro: It’s important to wrap here, because now we can operate on generic Command objects. Eve: Ok, how about that. Eve: Why are you using redundant wrapping into LoginCommand and just don’t call DB. Pedro: Delayed call, logging, history tracking, caching, plenty of usages.
Both terms mean taking some concept and turning it into a piece of data — an object — that you can stick in a variable, pass to a function, etc. So by saying the Command pattern is a “reified method call”, what I mean is that it’s a method call wrapped in an object.
Tools and Pipelines
Content sizes are increasing dramatically with new platforms. Show us your tech, TAs
You’re the glue that holds art production together, TAs. Point clouds, motion graphs, compression), facial animation, interactive and synthesized animation, and runtime retargeting. This type of format gives presenters one-on-one interactions with attendees. Possible topics include soft and rigid body physics, cloth, fluid simulation, destruction, and new approaches to animation. What have you learned from studying animation techniques used in other entertainment industries. What techniques have you evolved for supporting release on multiple platforms with highly varying specifications. As usual, we have seen amazing new developments in hardware and platforms, an ongoing evolution of business models, and huge changes to our audiences and the way they engage with our games – talks that explore and explain the impact of these changes and how to better design games in consideration of them will be especially welcome. And we’re seeking out top notch technical artists to show us new insights in look development and tool creation. Last year was the most popular ever for the GDC Visual Arts track, and we want you to help us build on that momentum. Examples of evergreen topics include: Creating amazing, unique sound design and music for games and integrated audio experiences Your finest analysis, project postmortems, tips & tricks, innovations, and technology Platform Challenges – opportunities afforded by new hardware, new user interfaces, and creatively overcoming limitations/restrictions “Post-production” – real-time mixing, DSP, their aesthetics and impact on the player experience Development – teams, management, direction, tools, pipelines, audio QA, audio localization Business – contracts, copyright, licensing, careers, freelancing Voice – aesthetics, asset acquisition and integration, performance and direction This year we’d also love to see submissions addressing these hot topics: Career development, from getting started to expanding, adapting, and reinventing Diversity of backgrounds, experiences, and skills Cross-disciplinary audio: when sound assists or interacts with gameplay in novel ways Real-time synthesis and procedural audio – music, sound, and speech Novel audio system implementations and programming best practices “MIDI music” – the power of note data and just-in-time scoring Sound and music for immersive and interactive virtual/augmented reality experiences Business & Marketing The Business & Marketing track is soliciting submissions that cover the following topics:
Key Software Platforms of Today & Tomorrow Platform analyses and cases studies including real data Development and marketing budget planning for new platforms
Marketing & User Acquisition Innovative marketing strategies including social, influencer, search & discovery optimization Community management, customer service, and open development User acquisition techniques, including real data Impact of marketing, live ops and on-going development on the wider business Financing Crowdfunding, presales, ICO’s, and traditional options like VC, project financing, and publisher financing Company Values Building culture, setting goals, developing talent Streaming Working with streamers, and building games for streaming Data on streamers impact on revenue, retention How to monetize streaming of your game VR and ARVR platform analyses with real data AR / Mixed Reality platform opportunities Esports Building a game for esports, or developing your esports scene Revenue opportunities in esports Design Design submissions in all areas are welcome, and we are particularly interested in high quality, deep and insightful game design talks presented at an advanced level for experienced professional game designers. It can be interactive; you can have them work in teams; you can give them challenges; you can include competitions. Below is the list of tracks for GDC 2018. Character Design Talks
We’d like to see a character talk that speaks to the DESIGN of the characters, not just how to sculpt high-frequency detail in Zbrush or do pretty rendering in Photoshop so the character design can pass a publisher focus test. Achieving the Most with Smaller Teams
Most titles are now created with small teams of programmers tightly focused on the specific needs of their title. Topics to be covered should range from diversity to censorship to quality of life. Examples include object systems, inventory and encumbrance, dynamic reactions to damage, conversation systems, etc. How should the AI deal with rendering techniques that are quickly descending the slope of the uncanny valley. We want to hear from someone who can talk about an interesting 2D art production pipeline. Think of this as (informal) classroom training. We want to see what you know, not just hear about it. We want submissions from composers, sound designers, audio directors, and programmers, and all game developers with unique perspectives and experiences with game audio; in-housers, freelancers, academics; indies to AAA; mobile, tablet, PC, console, virtual/augmented reality, and other form factors. Help set the agenda for the next generation of graphics by sharing your cutting-edge techniques and plans. The key is to show that you have deep and non-intuitive insights into your topic, forged through hands-on experience working on relevant games. Advocacy Given that the Game Developers Conference is such a large and broad forum, it is extremely important that we address new and existing issues within the realm of social advocacy. Online-centric Games
We want to hear about new developments in persistent universes, pervasively online games, cloud server usage, player-driven economies, multi-authority networking models, and security. Possible topics include: advanced multithreading approaches, streaming and open world games, working with massive data sets, techniques for rapid iteration, and other challenging core engine problems. What are the main challenges for smaller programming teams. Panels 60 Minutes Panels take many different viewpoints on a topic or issue and combine them in one debate session with a moderator. How do you tackle the constraints of Virtual or Augmented Reality enabled games. With these sessions, we hope to offer an environment for discussion and ultimately a place to effect positive change for the development community. AI Behavior Design
How has AI and NPC behavior advanced over the last year. Share your successes (and failures) in this with us so we can create better collaborative environments at our studios. Roundtables run up to three times, once a day during GDC Tutorials Full-Day Tutorials (simply) must teach attendees new skills. And anything new, fresh or experimental. Core Engine Techniques
Case studies of difficult problems in core engine development. How are you solving the difficult problems in content creation tools, content pipeline development, working with massive data sets, and providing rapid content creator iteration. Huge, tiny, startup, established: AAA console developers, Indie developers, Mobile teams, Cross-platform teams, Service teams, etc. Include all of the panelists you have confirmed in the proposal. We want artists to teach us new techniques, new tools and new styles. Debate among panelists (with very different opinions) is welcome and audience participation time should be accounted for. Audio The Audio track is soliciting submissions that cover the following topics: Innovative, creative, technical, inspirational, practical – we feature talks on every aspect of the art, science, and business of game audio. 2D Art Production Pipeline Talks
It is surprising how some aspects of 2D art production pipelines are a lot more work than 3D art production pipelines. Automated Testing in Games and Game Engines
What automated tools have you used to catch bugs in your game or engine. Are these techniques better suited for implementation on CPU or GPU. We are financing/genre/platform/business model agnostic – we just want the world’s best producers to share their knowledge. Advances in World Simulation
How have gains in computing power allowed for higher fidelity physical simulation. Posters 25 Minutes A poster session is similar to a traditional lecture; however, it is presented in front of the poster (a slide presentation is not needed) to a smaller group of attendees. We prefer 60 minute time for this format and no more than 5 people with diverse representation. We’re looking for people who are willing to share their skills and techniques with us. What will we be able to do with lighting, with procedural art generation, with materials, or with new pipelines. We want to hear from directors and managers who can teach us how to build great art teams, and create outstanding visuals on tight budgets and schedules. We are looking for case studies from everyone. Gameplay Subsystems
We’d love nitty-gritty detailed talks on various gameplay-oriented subsystems, things that are not rendering, networking, physics, and AI. It’s up to you to select the appropriate duration for your session. Presenters will prepare a 25-Minute presentation that will be given twice during our lunch break. A few project case topics the Production & Team Management Track is looking for, but not limited to, are the following topics:
Production Case Studies or day in the life of. Share your lessons with other animators as we want to hear the good, the bad, and the ugly regarding animation trials and tribulations. Has scripting reached its limits. Click on a track for descriptions of the topics solicited by the Advisory Board. Postmortems are welcome, as are examinations of aspirational techniques difficult to achieve in current games. Format Duration Description Lectures 60 or 30 Minutes Lectures are issue-oriented, provide concrete examples, and contain both practical and theoretical information. And we’re seeking out top notch technical artists to show us new insights in look development and tool creation. How do you create complex systems on short time scales and with limited resources. Making games for new platforms Producing VR Challenges of shipping on multiple platforms simultaneously Building and running a service or managing communities Managing licenses Any other best practices Studios & Teams
Producing with multiple types of production process Habits and culture of successful teams Building a new team: Start- up, new teams, mature team Communication methods for your team and from your team across the organization Managing creative people through difficult transitions Production Roles Working as/with external publisher production Doing production when not a producer (very applicable for small/indie teams) Transitioning into a producer role from another discipline Training and career progression of producers Producing multiple projects Working with a Product Management team Working with or producing your QA group Programming The Programming track is soliciting lectures focused on new techniques in programming, in particular:
New Game Platforms
How have new platforms and display devices changed game development. Moderators should facilitate conversation and keep the flow of discussion inspired and moving. How do you manage critiques within your organization. A great example from GDC 2012 was Elan Ruskin’s talk, AI-driven Dynamic Dialog through Fuzzy Pattern Matching. Or any other automated processes that improve robustness and quality of complex games. What new shader techniques are you investigating for next-gen. Advances in Rendering
Show us your cutting-edge techniques that demonstrate what new hardware is capable of. Come show us and inspire us. Visual Arts Success of the GDC Visual Arts track has grown over the past few years and we want you to help us build on that momentum. Whether you’re a AAA big budget developer or a small 2-person indie team, pull back the curtain and reveal the sketches, concepts, prototypes and in-development shots/videos that led you to the final look of your product. Next Gen Art Techniques
A console transition is looming, and it’s time to start planning for all the new graphics goodies it will bring. Constructive controversy and debate are very welcome in roundtables. A very limited number of panels will be accepted. Art Management and Production Talks
Did you develop an interesting strategy that saved you art development time and/or money. We look for those who are willing and able to effectively and efficiently share their experiences and skills with their peers at this cornerstone of the game audio calendar. Did an in-house or 3rd party tool help alleviate your production pipeline woes. Postmortems and case studies are included in this category. We want disruptive, inspirational and amazing artists, art directors, and art managers to speak this year. Art Culture
What core values are you looking for when you hire artists. Topics that are open-ended in nature and promote an exchange of ideas from people likely to have different viewpoints generally work best in this format. Production & Team Management The Production & Team Management track is looking for experienced producers who have shipped games to share their best techniques or experiences which helps them produce better games or build better teams. Possible topics include TAA strategies, content amplification, physically based materials and lighting, real time global illumination, new approaches to deferred and forward+ rendering, and advanced usage of compute shaders and GPGPU techniques. What new techniques are driving this advance. Presentation Formats As you can see below, there are multiple time period choices. What went right in your latest game’s motion capture sessions. We’d love to hear about your solutions to these problems and more. What specific programming problems of larger teams do you avoid. Is there look development work you’ve done that would enlighten us. These can range from the production side of design (such as designing characters for diverse audiences or dealing with testing for a procedural content generation system), to the nuts and bolts design problems of character ability tuning, to the aesthetics side of design (such as how to create an interactive space that elicits certain emotions from players) – or anything in-between. No problem, we’ll even let you have two presenters – one to talk and one to demonstrate. Inspirational Art Direction Talks
Continuing with our ‘coffee table book’ art direction sessions from last year we’re looking for art directors who are willing to not only talk about the evolution of their game’s style but to show us that evolution. High-fidelity Character Animation
How has character motion improved to match increasing visual fidelity. How does your team manage that. We want disruptive, inspirational and amazing artists, art directors, and art managers to speak this year. It can be a skill, an ability, a method or even the mastery of a tool. How do you manage to keep your artists from seeing the trees instead of the forest. Visual artists are just that, visual. If you are doing something in a different way that advances the state of the art, we would love to hear about it. Possible topics include advances in data representation (e. What new ideas in tools and pipelines have you developed this past year. We generally prefer only one speaker but we may accept two if you can demonstrate the second person is necessary. We’re looking for people who are willing to share their skills and techniques with us. Managing creative people with disparate personalities can be daunting. Animation
What sets your game’s animation apart from everyone else in the industry. Roundtables 60 Minutes Roundtables are small peer discussion groups led by one or two moderators and limited to a maximum of 50 attendees. The result of the time period MUST be that they’ll feel they’ve learned something truly useful in the world of game development. Can’t talk and draw at the same time. Do you have tips and tricks to share. We want to hear from directors and managers who can teach us how to build great art teams, and create outstanding visuals on tight budgets and schedules. Show off your 3D modeling techniques, concept art drawing, and animation work to the best audience in the world – your peers. They do not lecture or dictate.
