While waiting for tonight’s results I was thinking about how participating in the Ludum Dare teaches you a good number of lessons that are applicable to¬†entrepreneurship. If you are interested in stuff like that I wrote up a blog post on my thoughts on my blog My Life For The Code. Please let me know what you think! :)

    “Ludum Dare teaches you to be decisive.” Yes. This. Indeed.

    Great article, you nailed everything LD is about!

    I used to work as an advertising professional, but now I work as a webdeveloper/designer. I’m always facing tight schedules and tend to think low of me because I’m a freelancer, because I don’t have a “name” and, also, because everyone tend to think I do the easy job.

    LD helped me value my work even more and gain more self-confidence. Since I work from home and on a computer, people tend to think I don’t do much work, that I tend to be lazy and that my work is easy to do, when it isn’t that easy.

    LD opened my eyes even more about the hardships and mental stress that programming on a tight schedule and developing a project on a limited time frame does to the developer. It helped me value the time I have, the work I do and, even more, how I charge for my work.

    Also, I learnt to respect other developer’s works, because they feel same stress I feel, both in and outside of LD.

      It hadn’t really dawned on me the implications the LD has on understanding how project schedules and long work hours affect development. Thanks for the comment :)
