Entering its third year, Unity Developer Day has brought together hundreds of Unity creators of all backgrounds to promote the exchange of stories and skills that support the creation of successful Unity games and interactive media. We’ve had an amazing time with our community at past Developer Day events and can’t wait to have you join us again this year!

Each event in the series has two special conference tracks -- one with Unity staff and another highlighting local developers. In the Unity speaker track, you can learn about the latest Unity features along with how you can implement them into your projects. Here’s a peek at some upcoming talks for our early 2018 events:

  • Shader Graph: How to make your game unique with custom shaders
  • Job System and Entity Component System
  • Enhanced FBX workflows 2.0 for Max and Maya: Tools for complex asset pipelines
  • ProBuilder: Building and prototyping quickly
  • Scriptable Render Pipeline in-depth: Understanding the options and creating your own
  • ...and much more - check your local Developer Day page for details!

Our Local Developer Track shares the amazing work of regional studios using Unity. Talks in this track span several disciplines within game and media development -- past events have featured local studio presentations on game design, cinematics, programming, artist tools, AR/VR/XR, business development, and more. Come see event talks in English and Spanish from our previous Developer Day events on the Unity LatAm Youtube channel -- like this keynote presentation from our wonderful UDD Mexico 2017 keynote speaker, David Edery of Spry Fox!
