Joining a roster that includes the likes of ngmoco, Beefy Media and EA Sports, organisers behind this year's Develop conference in Brighton have named Sony Computer Entertainment Europe's Kish Hirani as a keynote speaker.

SCEE's head of developer services will offer fresh insight on PS Vita, highlighting the software development tools available for studios looking to get to grips with the handheld.

The graphical game

Said exposé will then be followed up by a look at the technical details behind PS Vita's graphical set up by SCEE R&D senior engineer Neil Brown.

"PS Vita uses a tiled based deferred rendering GPU which will be a bit unfamiliar to those who are used to standard PC or console GPUs," Develop notes in its reveal.

"The talk will include tips and techniques found by studios working on the launch titles."

Hirani's hour long keynote will kick off at 9pm on July 20. A summary of all the sessions confirmed so far can be found on the Develop Brighton website.
