021 - You Need Code For That? Disney Tech Talk Reflections

28 Jun, 2017

I attended a massively interesting* talk last week by some developers at Disney, talking about how they use code to build the amazing worlds and characters in their films. From Wall-E to Moana to Star Wars, the developers at Pixar, Disney Animation Studios, and Industrial Light & Magic (LucasFilm) play a big role in creating some awesome movies!

Besides seeing how cool their work and jobs are, I learned that for new developers, working at this level is many, many years away, and probably not a career path to focus on with a quicker transition in mind. Regardless, it was fascinating to learn about a new facet of programming and meet some cool people in the process.

PS* - this is a great episode if you like the word ‘interesting,’ apparently I love it! ;P
