Another Game Developers Conference is approaching — March 9-13 in San Francisco. I’ll be speaking again, but on a somewhat unusual topic, at least for me. I usually talk about C++ or Xbox or something related to writing code. This year I’m talking about something completely different: managing people. Specifically, I’ll be in the Producer Bootcamp, giving a presentation on how to lead effective teams. I’ve been managing teams for the past 15 years. Along the way I’ve learned a few useful leadership techniques and insights into how to inspire programmers and content creators to do their best work.
A special callout to my friend Laura Fryer for giving me the opportunity to speak on something other than programming. Thanks, Laura!
