Alexia Christofi is a producer working with the tools & technology team at PlayStation London Studio. Having never worked with a technical team before, join her as she shares the approach she took to connect with her team and have an impact, as well as detailing methods others can apply if they do not believe they have much technical acumen. Some of the things she will cover include: Facilitating. What could you help with in this moment? Prioritisation - How do we ensure things are done in the right order? How do we track work for explorative tasks? How do we leverage tech to make production easier? How do you bring changes to process to apprehensive teams? How do you convince a team of the value of new process? Are there clear differences between how a tech team and a game team work? How can you learn from your team? How can you communicate effectively with them? She will use examples from her day-to-day role to prove that you do not need to be a historically ‘technical’ person to have a technical impact.

Develop is a really great way to network, it’s also great for going to talks and finding that little tip that you didn’t know before and thinking – oh I’ll bring that back to the team!
Develop always gets put in the diary. There are many reasons to be here, not just the talks, but the networking, people exchanging ideas about where the industry is right now and where it’s going to. It’s pretty essential to be here I think.

If you really want to have a good interface with the British game developer community then this is the place to come.
Develop is the must-attend event for the games industry in the UK. It’s where we all come together and learn from each other. It’s the best way into the industry and it’s the best place to learn from your colleagues.
There’s really something for everyone at Develop and the experience of being around like-minded people is really useful.
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.
One of the things I like about Develop is it brings people together from across Europe and the whole world. There is a very high level of professionals here, so you have company leaders having drinks with juniors from their community.

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.
I absolutely love coming to Develop, it’s a brilliant, brilliant conference – you just know you’re guaranteed to meet everyone.
