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 is important – the networking is very important. And go to talks they’re inspiring and get your creative juices flowing, they can make you think and you’ll learn how other people do things.
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.
Develop:Brighton is especially unique - it’s by the seaside and there’s a lovely relaxed tone that goes with that.The talks are cool, the networking is cool and having the opportunity to catch up with people – that’s always the excitement for me!
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.
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.
It’s really nice to see some of the younger people in our studio come to Develop, interact with other people in the dev community and make new contacts. I think it’s really important to learn from other people.
There’s really something for everyone at Develop and the experience of being around like-minded people is really useful.
There are many ways you can be part of Develop:Brighton 2020 - including speaking in the conference, taking a booth in the Expo or becoming a sponsor.Find out more
