Learn time-tested tools and techniques for managing scope, cost and time to help your game projects run smoothly.




Class Description

Game development is tricky! Schedules slip, deadlines fly by, that small feature you added ballooned up into a huge resource hog. Team members aren't exactly sure what to do and spin their wheels, and the resources (including time and money) that you'd planned for the whole game were used up in the first half.

While there aren't any magic bullets to make game development completely smooth, there are ways to make sure that the game is well-planned and well-considered. During this workshop, we'll look at scheduling, task examination, planning and many other tools to help your game projects run as smoothly as possible. We'll start by examining the core elements of project management as they relate to games, and work through some exercises to put this knowledge into context!
