Unity Developer Day is a mini-conference series dedicated to supporting local developers through the exchange of stories and skills that promote the creation of successful Unity games and interactive media.

Our New York City edition brings together local game creators and Unity staff to share their expertise through a full-day conference track and a #MadeWithUnity showcase.


Unity Developer Day: New York City 2016

Unity Evangelists will give talks focused on how local NYC devs can get the most out of their work with Unity and its services. Local speakers will share experiences and insights gained throughout the creation of their Unity games - be it through programming, design, art, audio, business, and more.
