Free sessions for students, start-ups, and anyone else looking to be the next big thing! Join us to hear straight talking from successful indie developers about how they started, what worked for them, and what mistakes they made – so you can avoid repeating them.
The game accessibility field has evolved enormously over the past year, with many advances across hardware, platforms, middleware, resources, events, games and the continued growth of accessibility as a recognised discipline and job title. This session will take a look at how the landscape has shifted, where the industry is currently at, and where it needs to head in future.
Driving Diversity will discuss the business case for building diverse and inclusive studios and demonstrate why this is integral to the future success of the games industry. Khally will highlight some of the key challenges of creating more inclusive workplaces and provide solutions, including actionable steps for both companies and individuals.

If you really want to have a good interface with the British game developer community then this is the place to come.
I absolutely love coming to Develop, it’s a brilliant, brilliant conference – you just know you’re guaranteed to meet everyone.

Develop is an excellent way of catching up with people – there’s a really nice community feel here.

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’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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
There’s really something for everyone at Develop and the experience of being around like-minded people is really useful.
