Ted DiNola is a game programmer and designer with over a decade of experience. He kicked off his career leading Trendy Entertainment’s mobile sister-studio Puppy Punch Productions, went through a few years cutting his teeth in the social mobile space, then broke off from traditional studios to pursue fully independent development on Read Only Memories.
More recently, he has done work on Keita Takehashi’s Wattam at Funomena, and has spent the last several years as a Developer Relations Engineer on on the Content Ecosystem team for Oculus, where he provides deep-dive technical and design guidance to dozens of VR titles each year.
Ted has served as one of IndieCade’s Activity Chairs for the last three years, and is currently running the revamped IndieCade Community Discord.
Over the last two years, Ted decided to make a point of engaging with more independent games outside of work, by streaming long and short-play indie games as ESDN, and now, for T with indies.
