IGS Tech Toolbox 2018 Submission
This is the submission form for the Tech Toolbox session at the Independent Game Summit (IGS) at GDC 2018 in San Francisco.

The Tech Toolbox session is a series of 8 to 9 minute long microtalks, where developers present their homemade tools, snippets, editor extensions, hacks, and quick fixes for unique and novel solutions. These tools should ideally be non-commercial solutions to solving recurring problems in game development, be it day-to-day programming, pipeline optimizations, prototyping or other.

To get an idea about the sort of stuff we're looking for, take a look at previous editions:
Watch the 2015 edition here: http://www.gdcvault.com/play/1022284/Tech
Watch the 2016 edition here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W_okgL6HJX8
Watch the 2017 edition here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ujl0gzj-89g

Tech Toolbox speakers get a full GDC Speaker Pass (All Access + Speaker benefits).

When evaluating submissions, we'll be looking for the following info:
- Is this relevant and interesting to the average (indie) developer?
- Is the tool's design, or idea, platform/engine independent?
- Has the tool influenced the design or development of my game? How?
- Is it open source, proprietary, or commercially licensed? (The session is about sharing tools and practices, not promoting commercial products)
- Are you able to explain the tool in a short time?
- What is special about your tool?
- What aspects can you cover in <10 minutes?
- Can you explain and/or demo it meaningfully?

The Tech Toolbox submission form will close on December 22, at midnight PST.
