Stephan Reichart, Managing Director of devcom GmbH:
“We are overwhelmed by the high number of participants in our first fully hybrid devcom Developer Conference. Our decision to also stream all sessions online and to offer our online participants a unique event experience was absolutely right and confirmed what we had learned over the past few years. The talks & panels were well received by viewers all over the world and on site - and therefore our very special thanks go to all the wonderful people who shared their knowledge for us and with us. Kudos to the whole team for the outstanding work of the last two years, the result of which we could now see at the really great ddc2022 in Cologne this week. Now it's time for us to take a deep breath and then we'll continue in November with our two summits - Tech & Tool and Art & Animation - in the year-round devcom concept."

The conference kicked off on Monday with the keynote speech by Joe Brammer, co-founder and CEO of Bulkhead. The industry veteran spoke about "The Truth About the 4-Day Workweek" in his keynote address. Dana Nightingale, Campaign Director of Arkane Lyon, opened the second day of the conference. She reported in "Deathloop's User Research - User Experience Death Loop" about the influence of user surveys on the first hours of gameplay in "Deathloop".

Several new formats took place during the course of the conference. These included the exclusive networking dinner on the evening before devcom, the three-hour FLINTA* Meetup, the devcom Executive Summit and the big Indie Dev Night at Bootshaus in Cologne.
The events not only encouraged attendees to networking, but also to professional and cultural exchange. These aspects should also remain an integral part of the devcom Developer Conference in the future.
