The Toolsmiths Codex
Last update to the Codex - March 30, 2019
The Codex is a warehouse of information that is constantly curated by the Slack to hold reference information about best practices in tools. These topics are perennial at the Technical Issues in Tools roundtables at GDC, and by having this information available on the website we can focus more attention to trends and changes in the state of the art instead of calling out known solutions.
Also, the codex is an excellent resource to link to tools related lectures available on the GDC Vault, Twitch, Youtube, etc…
Best Practices in UX, architecture, patterns, programming languages. What works well and what doesn’t and why. Finding the right tools for the job.
Knowing the right words is like having the right tools for the job.
‘Those who don’t know history are doomed to repeat it.’
GDC Vault links to tool related lectures and Tools SIG round table Notes.
Helping to become masters of the trade
Books, Websites, blogs, youtube, twitch etc.
