THE TALK
~~~~~~~~~~
Can you still develop games independently while working a 9-5? How about solo? Well yeah, but how does that affect your work-life balance? How about the game itself?

Join Manny Mallea’s public-speaking escapade as he discusses why working part time as a solo indie developer while working a 9-5 has its benefits and obstacles. This is less lesson-giving and more analyzing/discussing, so please share your own experiences, concerns or advice. Manny may even throw in some cool pro? tips.
