I'm happy to meet up! Send my an email: clint [at] clintonkeith.com
In addition to the CSM4VG course I'm teaching, I have the following sessions:
Beyond Scrum: Agile Project Management for Games
Date/Time: Thursday (March 11, 2010) 9:00am — 10:00am
Location (room): Room 305, South Hall
The session is not an introduction to Scrum. It describes how Scrum fits in to an entire game project management framework.
Agile: No Silver Bullet
Speaker: Chris Oltyan (Director of Product Development, ZeeGee Games), Rich Vogel (Co-Studio Director, BioWare), Clinton Keith (Clinton Keith Consulting), Michael Capps (President, Epic Games)
Date/Time: Friday (March 12, 2010) 9:00am — 10:00am
Location (room): Room 303, South Hall
The goal of this panel is to discuss the good and the bad of agile development. Let's not sugar coat it, agile development is hard and does not fit all production paradigms. We'll discuss where the dogmatic approach to agile fails and where to apply practices from other areas, such as waterfall and lean. The panel will also answer audience questions directly and help diagnose how and why Agile projects went wrong, and methods teams and companies can use to get their processes back on track.
It should be a great GDC!
