Episode 74: From Gamer to Game Developer with Zack Schneider

A Tale of Proving out Passion!

In this week’s episode, we have the honor of speaking with our very own Zack Schneider about his career and growth as a game developer. We go into how his initial passion for playing games provided the spark to pursue a career in game development. We also dive into his experience getting a game development job immediately after leaving college — one that dealt exclusively with virtual reality no less!

We believe that Zack serves as an excellent subject in ‘proving out’ one’s passion and how doing so can lead to challenging yet rewarding work.

A kudos to you for listening in this week and we hope you enjoy the show! If you have any questions about our dearest Zack, be sure to contact us at: thedebuglog@gmail.com

    Great podcast guys. I like the part about the lack of motivation to finish, and that it takes a maturity of mind to realize you have to get things done.
    This is so recognizable and I guess this comes through the years. The start of a project is always great, and new ideas are talking to you like a devil on your shoulder.
    Don’t let it grab your attention when things are not fun or difficult, get things done, finish your project from A-Z, publish it.
    It feels great getting things accomplished. After that, you can start a new project with a clean slate, and use all your experiences of your previous project.

    Keep up the great work!
