GLGX 2021: Productivity Workshop


I gave a presentation at Great Lakes Game Expo 2021!

My talk was titled Productivity Workshop: Informing Your Process with Worklogs. It was about how I min-max my productivity so I can work less and do more using a system I call worklogs. It’s nothing groundbreaking but I think the overall process and philosophy behind it is something I don’t see talked about much.

Here’s a slide from the presentation that shows work data from 2020.

ExoCorps was part of the expo trailer reel along with a bunch of other awesome indie games in Michigan:
