Justin Quimby thinks that architects and engineers have a lot to learn from game developers. And KA Connect 2010 attendees agreed. Justin’s talk was one of the most popular of the conference.

For example, Justin thinks game developers could help architects and engineers to learn how to be lazy (remove friction), be lazy (leverage middleware), and be lazy (borrow code instead of developing their own.)

Watch "Game Development: An Unlikely Muse" for an outsider’s critique of the way we work. He’ll also talk about swords, monsters, and sniper rifles.
