Jason started with Origin Systems, after graduating from UT with a degree in Computer Science. He has since worked with Retro Studios, News Stand, Acclaim and Naughty Dog. He and his partners formed Steel Penny Games after working at Naughty Dog. Jason has continued his pipeline development consulting with companies such as Red Fly Studio and Disney Interactive.
But he has also become a wizened entrepreneur in the game development business. He will tell us what he expected starting up to be like with his years of experience and what it really was. And he will tell us about his decisions, both good and bad and how Steel Penny managed to get its feet under it after a self funded start.

Luke Gustafson of Datahouse Studios
Luke also grew up in the game business. He was an environmental artist, the guy who designs the worlds in which the game is played. He now has his own operation, Datahouse Studio, and he and his guys are take industrial graphic art in a totally new direction, the interactive animated graphic art has become the umbrella that covers the entire product development process in an industry. You have to see this to understand what is becoming possible.
