Sumo Developer Conference 2022 – That’s a wrap!

The first ever Sumo Developer conference, held last week, has been a huge success, with SDC23 already confirmed to take place.

Hundreds of people from Sumo Digital studios worldwide descended upon the University of Sheffield on June 22 for the internal Learning and Development conference, which saw over 50 speakers give talks over the two-day event.

The purpose of SDC is to share cutting-edge knowledge across different game development disciplines to help inspire our people. Talks during SDC covered areas including Art, Audio, Code, Design, Personal Development, Production and QA – as well as featuring demos and diverse and insightful roundtable discussions.

"It may be the end of this SDC, but it's not the end of the collaboration,” said Sumo Digital Managing Director Gary Dunn during his closing speech at SDC 2022. “We talked about it being the start of a culture of collaboration, and I hope that these two days have shown you what we can do together."

It was incredible to see so many of our people gather in one place to learn and network with one another,” said Sumo Group’s Group Director of Communications Christina Haralambous. “Collaboration is one of our core pillars at Sumo Group and we were proud to see so many of our studios working together to share their expertise.

“Pulling an event of this scale together was a true team effort, and I’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who made this event so successful.

More details will be shared nearer the time for SDC 2023. Becoming part of the Sumo Digital family will grant you full access to next year’s event, so be sure to check out available roles over on our careers page.
