The IT. The Information Technology… Strange world isn’t it? I’m a video game developer. I studied computer science like almost all IT developers, I love learning technical stuff and have a way with computers, like almost all IT developers, I love fighting the debugger and profiler, just like almost all IT developers… So why do we have the feeling to be so different? I mean, we’re supposed to be in the same team but we act as weird cousins that can’t stand each other because of biased ideas we have. This is so strange to me that I was looking for a way to talk to someone about this. So when the Mix-IT crew asked me to give a conference I immediately jumped on this opportunity and said yes.
I have been doing conferences and talks for two years now… I feel like I know how to talk to a large audience and how to explain things, even complex ones, about video games… but this time was different. I had to talk about video game development to kids. Even if they are tiny, they scared me as an audience… but believe it or not they were, in the end, way more awesome than scary!
Some of you may think I am dead. Some of you may think Monkey Moon is about to be shut down. Some of you are wrong.
I had hard times at school when I was young… In fact I gave hard times to my teachers at school when I was young. Long story short: I performed so poorly that there was absolutely no hope to see me doing something else than being enrolled in the army. However the story has ended differently and the paradox of this is that I now have a huge respect for those who try to teach something.
