[LECTURE 2:30PM] Introduction to DirectX Raytracing [3-Hour Tutorial Session]
     Lecturers: Chris Wyman, Adam Marrs, and Juha Sjoholm
Official Description: Are there rules for designing games that no one has told you yet? As the craft of game design matures, there's a lot of established best practices that most people agree on. But some of the most unique designers have their own sets of game design techniques that are not common knowledge. In this talk, you get to find out what they are. The popular Rules of the Game session returns for GDC 2019 to invite five more veteran designers to talk for ten minutes each about a technique they use that sets them apart from common design practices. The aim of this session is to keep each lecture as advanced and technical as possible, diving right into the details of what makes a given "rule" work. Whether you agree or disagree with the techniques presented, they're sure to get you thinking about game design in entirely new ways.
Location: Room 153, South Hall
Time: Tuesday 19th March / 2:40pm - 5:40pm

[LECTURE 4:00PM] Technical Artist Bootcamp: “Understanding Constraints: A Framework for Tech Art Decision Making” & “Tech Art at Scale: Supporting 2,000 Users”
Lecturer: [Joint Session] Alexander Zotikov (Technical Artist, Remedy), Luiz Kruel (Senior Tech Artist, SideFX Software)
Official Description: The first step to making any decision in a technical art pipeline is to identify constraints. Every game has varying requirements, employees of different backgrounds and cultures, and technical limitations that must be taken into consideration. To effectively make decisions, you must collaborate with stakeholders, communicate effectively, and validate your assumptions. Sometimes, it is easy to get caught up in the day-to-day problem solving without recognizing bad practices or patterns in the bigger picture. By highlighting practical examples, this talk will help you identify the constraints that affect your projects and steps you can take to make decisions that will expand technical opportunities in the future. [“Understanding Constraints: A Framework for Tech Art Decision Making”]
Location: Room 3004, West Hall
Time: Tuesday 19th March / 4:00pm - 5:00pm
