With over 30 years of game development under my belt, I'd like to think I know a fair bit about game development. I have a very wide range of experience, from early programming on many systems in many languages. To more recent times of managing large teams on Console & PC often involving new technology and peripherals, The latest development being VR projects!
UKIE turns 30 this year, to celebrate this session this panel of veterans will discuss the past, present, and their effects on the British games industry. This panel will share their favorite Bullfrog stories, how they handled the transition from small, carefree developers to AAA big budget machines, the transition to digital content and possibly a few war stories that are only shared at the pub.
I really like Develop, I really like the intimacy of it and I love the location.. there’s a good diversity of talks going on so there hasn’t been a time when there’s nothing I want to see.
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.
I absolutely love coming to Develop, it’s a brilliant, brilliant conference – you just know you’re guaranteed to meet everyone.

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.
There’s something creative about Brighton, so it’s the perfect place to have the conference.
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.
If you really want to have a good interface with the British game developer community then this is the place to come.
Building games is hard and it’s taxing physically, mentally and emotionally. So being around a community that understands that is great – there’s a comraderie here.
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
