In this talk Ivan Safrin will take a look at the motivation behind writing a cross-platform development framework from scratch, discuss why open source tools are key to the future of independent game development, attempt to answer once and for all if it's a really good or a really terrible idea to spend years reinventing the wheel and give a demonstration of his own open-source cross-platform development framework.
