UK developer Mitu Khandaker is our next speaker highlight, in a session she has titled "A Day in the Life of a Solo Developer".

Lessons from the lonely frontier of being a solo indie developer, from the one-woman team behind The Tiniest Shark Ltd, currently developing first commercial title, Redshirt. As a solo developer for the last 18 months (bonus content: while also trying to finish a PhD), Mitu chronicles the highs, the lows, and the cold, hard truths behind a day in the life of a new lone indie. and how you can prepare if you're thinking of doing the same.

Mitu's bio is right here for you to learn more about her:
