Sumo Digital’s flagship learning event


Sumo is committed to ensuring its 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 is integral to that strategy and is a great opportunity to ensure world class content across all game development disciplines, plus personal development and business, is accessible to all our people, in one place, at the same time.

SDC sessions cover all disciplines of games creation; art, audio, code, design, live ops, production and QA plus there are sessions on personal development and business.


The majority of our speakers at SDC are from one of our 18 studios and businesses across Sumo Group but we’ve also had the likes of Epic Games, Microsoft, Amazon Web Services and SpecialEffect attend to give key notes and present talks.


SDC also offers numerous networking opportunities for people to come together in person and our fringe events include the Student & Sumo Digital Academy games showcase, 5-a-side football and so much more!

“It’s fundamentally important to bring everyone together at SDC, it provides an opportunity to bring game creators from so many world class gaming experiences together to share, learn and build those bonds together”
