The biggest Unity conference is around the corner and will happen this year in Seattle August 20-22. I had the pleasure to visit Unite last year. Its an amazing conference and must-go for game developer. Just in case you are not familiar with Unity, here the official description from the Unity website. “Unity is a game development ecosystem: a powerful rendering engine fully integrated with a complete set of intuitive tools and rapid workflows to create interactive 3D and 2D content; easy multiplatform publishing; thousands of quality, ready-made assets in the Asset Store and a knowledge-sharing community.” The best of all. You can create awesome looking games, cross-platform in my favorite language C#. If you looking into game development for Windows 8, Windows Phone or any other mobile platform then Unity is your best choice and Unite 2014 the place to be. http://unity3d.com/unite
Unity & Windows Training and Porting Lab
Also part of last years Unite was Microsoft’s Porting Lab. I worked together with Microsoft engineers and Unity experts to help game developer porting their mobile games to Windows Phone. It was an awesome experience with a lot of fun and lot to learn. The Porting Lab’s were so successful that this year, Microsoft is bringing them back as a dedicated full day event. You can find all the details and the registration form here https://www.regonline.com/builder/site/default.aspx?EventID=1563846. So mark your calendar for the 19th of August and bring your Unity game to the Porting Lab. Almost forgot the best. Every attendee who ports his game will receive a Windows Phone and will be entered for a drawing for a Surface Pro.
So I hope you can make it. Unfortunately I will miss out on Unite this year. But I’m looking forward to some well deserved family vacation with my wife and my 3 kids.
