Nordic Game, Hansoft and IGDA jointly announce four speakers for the Production Track at the Nordic Game 2012 Conference

Malmö, Sweden, 18 April, 2012 – Nordic Game, Hansoft and IGDA today announced a line-up of four prominent speakers for the Production Track during Nordic Game 2012, May 23-25 in Malmö, Sweden.

Dorian Kieken, Bioware, will kick off with a session about building a studio culture and how the company culture at Bioware has been a key to success at the studio.

Philippe Angely, Virtuos, will share his experiences from outsourcing at Virtuos and talk about how multiple multidisciplinary teams best work together to deliver more content.

Jay Ranki, Remedy, will discuss Agile 2012, present practical tips and tricks from the trenches and give a look at how Remedy applies different agile practices into their practical everyday work.

Finally Don Daglow, Game development legend and well known speaker, will share his best tips on how producers and production can unlock creativity in a world of ever-tightening schedules, micro-managed budgets and hyper-competitive markets.

The Production Track is organized in collaboration between Nordic Game, Hansoft and IGDA. The track kicks off on May 24, and it aims at taking production discussions to a new level, involving both junior and senior developers.

“We wanted to take some of the interesting discussions around cutting edge production practices we frequently have with our customers into a more public forum, inviting an even bigger crowd to join the conversation. Most importantly we want the Production Track session content to be in-depth enough for senior production leaders, still comprehensible for junior leaders just learning the ropes. We are very proud to present such a strong lineup of speakers who all have the success and experience to back it up,” said Patric Palm, Production Track advisory board Chair and Hansoft CEO.

It's the Final Countdown!
