Finding your Discipline: Pursuit of a Technical Artist
I remember listening to the director of our program talk about the importance of disciplines in the game development field. He pushed the idea that all the students should work on having a T shape, in which a developer has a breadth of skills but focuses on one discipline. I didn’t understand the importance of these multiple disciplines until putting it in different terms. The game development industry is comprised of a great deal of specialists who do their jobs efficiently. I commonly compare a development team to either a raid group or a sports team.
