QuakeCon 2011: John Carmack’s Keynote and Q&A

by Skibs

This year’s Carmack-Talk focused on the id software’s upcoming title RAGE. Carmack’s initial talk comes off much like a post-mortem for the soon-to-be-released FPS, commenting on the triumphs and difficulties of creating the ambitious cross-platform title. Of note is Carmack’s recent conversion to static code analysis software, his experimentation with PC-Lint and  Visual Studio’s Analyzer.
