Which is why I wanted to start a new feature called Dining With Developers. The premise behind the series is that Evan Narcisse and I will sit down in a semi-fancy (or barely fancy) restaurant with developers, ply them with alcohol and appetizers, then get them to reveal their innermost secrets and maybe even cry like on a Barbara Walters special.
The idea here is to humanize developers, to hear their stories, and to talk in depth about our beloved medium.
While at the DICE Summit a couple of weeks ago, Narcisse and I (along with Electric Playground's Victor Lucas) took Pete Wanat and Nick Torchia out for dinner at Hachi inside the Red Rock Resort. No one cried. Well, Nick did a little. It was great. How great? Click here. See? Told you. Great, right?
