Technical artists spend much of their time working on internal tools and libraries. While it's important to be successful in your own work and tools, you can gain excellent perspective from working on projects outside of the studio environment. This talk will detail the benefits, challenges faced, and cover a variety of methods for contributing to open source projects.


By the end of the session, attendees should have a basic idea of ways to contribute to open source projects, and some of the benefits of doing so, along with some potential challenges they might face.

Intended Audience

The talk is mostly intended for technical artists and technical animators, but anyone interested is welcome.
