AWESOME & FREE Unity Event on Saturday Feb 15th, 2014


Southern California
Free Unity Learning Events and Porting Lab on Saturday, February 15th, 2014

We sure have an awesome day planned out for you!

****** Please Note, there are THREE free events that are going on this day that you can attend, please read about each event and register for each event you want to attend individually. Did I say each event is FREE along with food & beverage? Note that parking is reduced to be a max of $10 for the day with validation. Please bring parking stub into the event for validation ****

Session #1 @ 10:00 AM – 2:30 PM
http://unitynewfeat.eventbrite.com
Join Microsoft & Unity for a technical deep dive that covers the new features in Unity 4.3 with focus on how to create a 2D game and the character animation controls with Mecanim. By the end of the session you will be able to create a 2D infinite runner gamer person starting with importing artwork from the Asset Store, creating a playable game in Unity and exporting it to the Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8 Store.

Session #2 @3:00 PM – 6:00 PM
https://unitydeepdive.eventbrite.com
Taught by Carl from Unity, this session aims to build upon the foundations of Unity to learn how to create a third person character controller with Unity's awesome animation system, Mecanim. After that, we'll learn some tips & tricks for doing particle effects (like explosions) in Unity with Shuriken, Unity's very powerful particle system.

Following that we'll have some special guests from Tic Toc Games showing off some of their cool Unity work and talking about the game development process and making successful games.

Session #3 10:00 – 6:00 PM (running concurrently to the other sessions)
http://portyourapp.eventbrite.com
Unity Porting Lab - Join us to port your existing Unity games to Windows. Why? Windows Phone is outselling the iPhone in 24 markets. Windows 8 has surpassed 150 million licenses. The time is now to push your apps out in a marketplace that is not overly saturated. Microsoft will provide free onsite technical assistance to help  you port your existing Unity app(s) over to run on Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 platforms. We'll have devices to test on too! If you have any interest in getting your app on the Windows platforms, this is the event to go to! Bring your laptops or desktops that you use for development (Windows or OSX) with your games on them and we’ll help get you setup and start you on the porting process.  This will run concurrently to the other events. If you want to go back and forth between this event and the others, please register for both so we know which time group you’ll be in (you can register for all three if you’d like as well)

**** If you plan on staying for more than one event, please register for each one separately so we can have an accurate count for food & beverage.****

Location
Microsoft - The Reserve, Playa Vista Office
13031 W. Jefferson Blvd., LOS ANGELES, CA
Turn onto Alla (towards Home Depot) from Jefferson at the stoplight of Jefferson & Alla (Home Depot is on the corner)
Go to the end of the street and turn left into the last lot on the left. Take a ticket and be sure to bring it in with you.
Once in the lot, turn left in the first few rows and park as close to the buildings as possible. Enter the walkway in the center of the complex there and Microsoft is on the left hand side a few doors down.
The office entrance is just about exactly where the marker shows up in Bing Maps http://binged.it/LOgoRt

See you soon!

  1. Will any of these be posted on the Unity website or someplace that I can watch them from my house? I can't get to California

    1. Always helps, but I don't think its required but I havent seen all the content Carl is covering, but a lot of it wont be code focused (Im sure there will be some code walk through though). So basically, come either way :)

  3. Is there a dev environment setup checklist or is this more demo than lab?
