Alessia Laidacker, Director of Developer Experience | Magic Leapb

Aleissia is a game programmer and designer who has been working as a developer for 16 years and developing games at Ubisoft for 10 of them. She was Lead AI on multiple ‘Assassin’s Creed’ games. Her passion for design has pushed her teams to think about why they are developing their games rather than just how they develop them. She empowers her teams to think outside of the box through game jams and experimentation.

Recently she has made the jump from video games to mixed reality, joining Magic Leap as Interaction Director for their new San Francisco office. There, her team focuses on finding new and innovative ways to create rich immersive experiences focused on player interaction and narrative.
