The Joy of Miniature Painting

A presentation at Abstractions in in Pittsburgh, PA, USA by Caleb Thompson

As developers, we often stare at a computer screen all day only to go home and stare at more glowing boxes all night. Having a nontechnical hobby can really help to keep us sharp for our day jobs. As I live-paint a small model for a tabletop wargame, I will describe some of the techniques I use. You'll hear me discuss how having a hobby has helped me stave off burnout. I'll also impress the importance of open and frank discussion around mental illness.
