A Week of Game Programming Lessons
Learn the latest programming skills and techniques to develop games across platforms including consoles, mobile, PCs, virtual reality, and more. The demand for high production value in games continues to increase with new tools, middleware, and technical skills required to solve difficult development problems.
One-Day Summit | Monday | March 18, 2024
This one-day summit provides profession insights into the state-of-the-art graphical techniques used by some of the most visually advanced games on the planet. Summit speakers will dive deep into the technical details and optimizations that drive the graphical fidelity of their games, sharing both lessons learned as well as ideas for future directions and advancements. Attendees of the summit should be familiar with modern rendering APIs such as DirectX or Vulkan, real-time shading languages, the basics of GPU programmable pipelines, as well as common real-time graphics algorithms. Some knowledge of game engine rendering architecture is helpful but not strictly required. The summit strives to focus on vendor-neutral techniques so that each session will have the potential to benefit all engines and shaders.
