Harry is a Brighton based programmer currently working as part of Unity's Sustained Engineering team. His main interests are in systems and tools programming, as well as performance and optimisations. Prior to Unity, Harry worked within the Indie scene on the upcoming game "Off Grid", as well as working on AAA Mac, Linux and Android ports for Feral Interactive. Past projects include: Alien: Isolation, Grid Autosport, DiRT3 and Black & White 2.
Assets are at the very core of any Unity game, and yet the asset pipeline can be one of the most opaque systems to developers. In this session, one of Unity's internal developers will deep-dive into the process your assets will go through from being dragged into the project window, to being loaded by the engine when you hit play. This session will also feature a low-level look into how assets, dependencies and scenes are represented within Unity and how you can use a deeper understanding of these systems to improve your game’s performance and your studio’s development experience.

I’ve felt a big passion here at Develop!
There really is a huge mix of people at Develop - loads of peers that you can learn from and the perfect blend of every element of game development as well.
I absolutely love coming to Develop, it’s a brilliant, brilliant conference – you just know you’re guaranteed to meet everyone.

Develop:Brighton’s a great conference. It’s got a spread of people from all parts of the games industry talking about such a wide range of topics.
I’ve been to every single Develop in the last 12 years. One thing you get here is networking - you will meet the most amazing individuals in the video games industry.
There’s really something for everyone at Develop and the experience of being around like-minded people is really useful.
There’s something creative about Brighton, so it’s the perfect place to have the conference.
Develop is a very important place – it’s one of the few developer focussed conferences we have in Europe and that makes it very valuable.
We are so lucky to have Develop here in the UK. It’s a unique event where you can come and discover new things with people who care passionately about video games. It’s a sea full of new ideas.
By coming to Develop what you get is the opportunity to network like you can’t in any other situation. Everyone knows everyone and it’s such a wonderful community feel.
There are many ways you can be part of Develop:Brighton 2018 - including speaking in the conference, taking a booth in the Expo or becoming a sponsor.Find out more
