DCC tools setup
Presentation covers how Rovio handle DCC (Maya/Python mostly) plugins and scripts in multi-project and multi-team environment. Goal for any tool is to make things easier and this should start from the installation already. Setting up you computer, all tools and scripts can be annoying task and even daunting for newly joined team member. Doing initial setup and loading your tools poorly just result unmaintainable mess which won't support your project as well as it could. This talk will go through how we approach this at Rovio, some best practices and what pitfalls you should avoid. Aim of the talk is to give listener a solid understanding about how custom DCC tools are made to support real-life production requirements.
