Gamers are everywhere, coming in all ages and genders, and developers have grown up, too.
'Fowl Space' was a lovechild of boredom. While in class, two of the developers started passing designs back and forth. Somewhere in the middle of all that ink and crumpled paper, a chicken in a space helmet was born and thus we have 'Fowl Space.'
Clearly, private developers can have different aims, and architects can only play a certain role. You can have some pretty big battles on public commissions, too. The key is to have a good client.
For most developers, that kind of situation - a player figuring out how to do something that the designer didn't intend - to most developers, that's a bug. For me, that's a celebration.
I'm not sure this is such a good thing, but I doubt I'd be doing what I do if I hadn't discovered science fiction and fantasy at an early age. No Heinlein or Tolkien, and there's no me - professionally, at least. Like most game developers of my generation, I got into this because I loved reading about aliens and spaceships and monsters and myths.
The concept of emergent gameplay is really exciting. That's when players are really crafting their own experience. So if you're clever and creative, you can do things that even developers of the game didn't know were possible.
The original dream of Facebook Platform was to enable developers to build experiences that were social at their core, like Facebook Photos, without having to build their own standalone social network.
IA is something that is proceeding very naturally, in most cases not even recognized by its developers for what it is.
I have been able to attend many technology conferences around the world over the years, including some of the largest, like Google I/O, Microsoft's Developer Conference, Apple's WorldWide Developers Conference, Oracle World, Le Web, and more.
Local councils are hostile to large developers and think that, by doing this, they are standing up for the community. But they're wrong.
I actually think Facebook made it their business to be close with all of the app developers. They couldn't have done more.
When I was young, we didn't have indie games. We had 'garage developers' or similar terms, who were just small teams making games out of passion.
I did my degree in journalism, and I then went on to being a games journalist, reviewing and previewing games and writing about the industry, visiting and interviewing developers.
Cosmoe is nearing the stage where I would feel comfortable doing a preliminary release aimed at developers.
Developers need to start moving away from the entitled macho-male power fantasy in their games. They need to recognize that there are wider stories that they can tell.
I'd like to see an arrested growth of development. You can't stop it, but it's important we do something about the developers having the upper hand.
AIR grew out of our early thinking about rich Internet applications around 2001. We started to see web developers pushing the boundaries of what could be done inside the browser and taking advantage of Flash in ways that we hadn't expected.
My job in Congress is to identify projects with federal or some other public component and then to push developers to provide employment opportunities to neighborhood residents.
Sun's role in the grand scheme of development is to work on the runtime environment and the APIs. The tools we produce are much more for systems programmers, not enterprise developers.
Development in this county is always going to be an issue. Until development and zoning are handled on a regional basis, rather than each municipality left to its own devices, we will suffer from developers having the upper hand in suits and in front of zoning boards.
It gives you great pleasure to know that millions of developers, day to day, make their living using the software that you created.
I founded the Game Developers Conference and was using that lowly pulpit to try to preach to the industry to stop focussing on kiddie games, start doing better things. I was fighting a losing battle. In the early '90s, I realised it wasn't going to work. I couldn't convince other people, so the only way it was going to happen was for me to do it.
John F. Kennedy
Martin Luther King, Jr.
