LSU is proud to announce our second guest speaker for the Redstick Video Game Symposium. We are happy to welcome Jeff Skelton to Baton Rouge and excited to hear about large scale development challenges on AAA video game projects. Jeff works at EA Vancouver in an incredible studio setting.

Over the past 21+ years as a software engineer Jeff has shipped games on numerous hardware platforms, with EA and before. Jeff’s game contribution credits include many years on each of the NBA Live and NHL sports franchises, the Fight Night franchises, and helping games like Dragon Age Inquisition, SSX V, Battlefront, and multiple others.
