We’re delighted to confirm some of our fantastic speakers for the first-ever internal Sumo Developers Conference (SDC 2022), which will take place in June 2022 in Sheffield.

We’re committed to ensuring our people have every opportunity to learn, progress and excel in their chosen career paths, or to explore new disciplines and skills within game development. SDC will bring together over 700 developers from all the Sumo Digital studios to learn from the experts, share their own knowledge, meet their peers, and build networks. The sessions will also be streamed live.

SDC 2022 will feature seven streams of content, each led by an expert in that discipline from one of Sumo’s studios, with further sessions and speakers from the studios to be confirmed in the coming months. The content streams and leads for next year’s conference are:

Art - Pete Barnard (Sumo Leamington)

Design - Dan Pinchbeck (The Chinese Room) and Andy Willans (Sumo Newcastle
Personal Development - Jenny Muhlwa (Sumo Group)

“We’ve carefully considered the content of SDC 2022 to make it an unforgettable opportunity for sharing knowledge, meeting our people and building networks, we want to ensure we’re continually pushing the limits of playable experience” said Gary Dunn, Sumo Digital Managing Director. “The conference will be open to all our people at Sumo Digital studios, with the sessions being streamed live and I’m looking forward to sharing more details over the coming few months”.

As part of the Sumo Group of companies, Sumo Digital’s SDC is an integral part of a wider strategy from the Group ensuring learning is cutting edge and that world-class content is accessible to all its people.
