As a web developer, I get really impressed with game development. Keeping the client side "independent", but always synced with the server side. Keeping slow response times. Handling packets. Graphics. Talking to the GPU. I like to read Riot Games (best known for League of Legends) engineering blog. They always post something about the challenges of this side of software engineering.
If you're a game developer, or enthusiast, please, tell me about you! What have you built, the tools (programming languages and stuff) that you use in your day-to-day, how have you ended up in game development, how hard do you think it is, and maybe some tips for anyone looking to change the industry they're currently working. =)
(ask them anything)
