A long held dream in the development world has been the idea of "author once, deploy anywhere". To explain what is meant by that is simple, it's the notion of being able to author your content one time, then through the simple click of a button deploy your content on any platform you like, whether that's on the desktop, the web, gaming consoles or mobile devices. Nobody is quite there yet and there is more work to be done, but with that in mind Unity Technologies is making tremendous progress in making this dream a reality, and Unity is already used by thousands to distribute content across a variety of platforms. While the benefits of this author once deploy anywhere notion might seem clear at first blush, there are a few points worth discussing in particular, so let's look at those in a bit more detail.
