comment Topics for development team cross training sessions
My point was, doesn't cross-training mean Person A who knows X teaching person B who knows Y how to do X?

comment Topics for development team cross training sessions
How do you provide "cross training and knowledge improvement" while limiting topics to only things everyone is already working with?

comment Will taking a year out reduce my employability
What exactly do you see as the goal of "independent game development" referenced by the OP as a "job" if not to generate a sustainable income? The OP says "If it works, that's cool and I can carry on, if it fails I'll try looking for another job." You'd probably be surprised how many "small" iPhone game companies are run by a single developer.

@n1ck A company can be one person, building games on their own, supporting themselves. Also, the winking emoticon just makes your comment seem smarmy.

I estimate that your perception of reality is 10-20 times as irrelevant as how wrong your estimate is.

"Programming people" is a pretty huge overstatement of what real life BAs & PMs do.

This is a terrible anecdote. The same exact point could be made from the position of a sole programmer who codes themselves into an obfuscated corner and then demands a 500% raise.
