This year's Develop conference will include Evolve, a programme dedicated to platforms including iPhone, XBLA, mobile, social and casual gaming.
The sessions will run on Tuesday 14 and Wednesday 15 July, focusing on coding, production, art, design and business.
"Our established two-day event will continue to deliver solid sessions packed with takeaway value, while our new Evolve opener is a direct response to developer demand," commented Owain Bennallack, chair of the event's advisory board.
"Fringe topics two years ago - downloadable content, microtransactions, social gaming and meshing your game with internet services from Facebook to YouTube - are now centre stage, and it no longer makes sense to ghettoise sub-sectors like online, casual and mobile," he added.
The Develop Conference in Brighton takes place July 14 – 16, 2009. GamesIndustry.biz Network members can add it to their profile and communicate with other attendees here.
