Remedy’s rapid-iteration framework has gone open-source, and on top of that it’s being pushed into a production environment with an unconventional userbase for compiled code - scripters. This talk will cover the challenges involved in creating a middleware for immediate use in a production environment; how it provides the backbone to replace scripting in a traditional sense; and design considerations required when your userbase can’t be shrugged off by saying, “They’re programmers, they can deal with a restrictive or unintuitive API.”
Hailing from the fictional land of Australia, Ethan Watson is no stranger to DConf. As a senior engine programmer at Remedy Enterainment, he was part of the team responsible for shipping Quantum Break. As a speaker, he has presented at DConf, GDC Europe, and Reboot Develop. As a person, some might say he likes squirrels just a bit too much but they’re objectively wrong. We don’t have squirrels in Australia.
