About

I have sixteen years of software development experience, from individual contributor to leading tech at a game studio. I have shipped code on a variety of platforms, from PC, mobile, video game consoles, cloud backends, and more. I'm now the Head Of Engineering at Formations. I'd love to share my knowledge and experience to help you reach your goals.

I have worked on games like Company of Heroes and Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War 2. More games are listed here: https://www.mobygames.com/developer/karl-schmidt/credits/developerId,241390/

I have had several sessions with Karl and our weekly calls are really helpful! He's helped me keep my studying on track and giving advice on what topics to explore next.

Karl gives you the real deal. He carefully articulates what the industry demands and the niche practices and methods employed by top developers. If you seek him out you will find someone with patience, experience, a duty toward mentoring for the Games Industry and someone who is direct about quality in Games Developer mentees or any candidates.
