Ask me anything – AMA

What’s going on here?

We’re starting a pseudo-AMA series. The goal is to achieve two things: share the wisdom of people near the top of the game, and share a little bit of fun. I can’t think of all the fun times I’ve had just chatting up a storm with colleagues and friends over little things that happened on a project or how we’ve got some new idea to totally revolutionize our work. These chats, as fun as they are, also hold a ton of informal wisdom that has been distilled and iterated on with the shared knowledge of a lot of high end developers, designers, integrators, and experts. We can often take for granted that the things we’re talking about might be useful to a broader audience and could help up the game of a lot of of other people.

So on the blog we’re going to start a series of reader driver AMA-style posts. I’ll receive questions and topics from readers like yourself, and then either tackle a bunch of them myself in a “quick-fire/first-impression” format or I’ll do a deeper dive on a topic with a guest of mine, where we have more of a conversation about the topic and our experiences around it.

Get Our 7 Core TouchDesigner Templates, FREE

We’re making our 7 core project file templates available – for free.

These templates shed light into the most useful and sometimes obtuse features of TouchDesigner.

They’re designed to be immediately applicable for the complete TouchDesigner beginner, while also providing inspiration for the advanced user.

Who will be involved?

As I mentioned above, a split of the posts will be quick-take/rapid-fire AMA-style posts with myself. The other split will be with (obviously) some of the top TouchDesigner talent out there, but I’ve also talked to and invited a number of other professionals, including integrators, Unity developers, interactive designers, Processing developers, music composers, project managers, business owners/entrepreneurs/studio owners, and more. We’ll have a good mix lined up for you.

How to ask a question or suggest a topic?

Submitting a question is easy. Just open up your email, hit compose, and send your topic / question to:

elburz-ama ( at sign here ) nvoid ( dot ) com

That’s it! Once you send your topic or question, I’ll sort through them, tackle them myself or with my guest, and get you the answers you want. Stay tuned!
