On the Friday of this year's Game Developers Conference, the Game Career Seminar
will offer a series of speakers and roundtables aimed toward students hoping to break into the industry. Kicking off the event will be David Jaffe, who will be delivering a keynote speech entitled "From Grunt to God
to Startup: Career Lessons from the Edge of Development."
Jaffe will be discussing his own history in the industry, starting from his earliest projects and lowliest jobs, to his own indie studio, Eat Sleep Play, where he's working on several unannounced Playstation 3 titles. Though infamous for his matter-of-fact approach, Jaffe is also a dynamic and engaging speaker, having previously participated in GDC events like last year's Game Design Challenge
. It will be interesting to see what advice he has to impart upon the wide-eyed developers of tomorrow.
