The industry has come a long way since testing games in the late 1990's and early 2000's. Come hear two experienced testers with over 40 years of combined experience, both working internally and externally with game studios, talk about the fun, often creative, and "wild-west" approach to testing, mistakes we made, lessons we've learned, and improvements we've brought over the years…as well as some lost arts focused on data that we continue to use to this day.


Ask questions to veterans in the industry about testing, game production, and more!
