Mom has her major 10 - 14 hour surgery today. Which is probably already started. I’m at work. 1. Because it’s only 15 minutes away from the hospital. 2. Because even under these circumstances I don’t think I could stand to sit for 10+ in a waiting room with my uber conservative father. Still, going to be heading there after work and I just hope I don’t get any calls during the day. Calls indicate badness happening.
I have to apologize for another "job in the industry" question. I've been in the tech industry for about a decade though my focus is on distributed systems and security (crypto). I have a stable and well paid Silicon Valley job but it's not in the game industry. If I were to ask you if I should try for a game dev job what reasons would you give me for absolutely NOT working in the game dev? And is there a reason to join other than the love of games?
