We aim to give an overview and provide the resources you need to find out exactly what you want.
Game development is a serious and hugely enjoyable career, but it's competitive and demanding. Developing games now typically involves large teams working on big projects, and involve a combination of art (both 2D and 3D), animation, audio, game design and programming. It's very important to understand that companies are looking for people who are skilled in and focused on one of those elements.
It's also important to know that, while it might be a good place to start, simply enjoying games is not enough to get a job. In fact, far from it! Games development involves many different and complex skills. You need to be smart, creative, practical and have very good core skills. In addition to all that, you also need to be good at working with other people, able to explain your ideas and listen to other peoples' ideas and criticism.
Drop into this event at any time during the afternoon and meet with several leading female industry figures, including Kim Blake of Blitz, Kate Russell of the BBC and others.
