The Dublin Unity3D Development Discussion takes place on the 26th of January, 2012.

It came about due to two events: Mark Aherne had reached a milestone in his UNION game development with the creation of a networked physics system, and discussions with other game developers at the BitSmith Games Christmas drinks.

As with many things, it was after the pub discussions that Mark realised he had a lot to share with other developers and in turn they had a lot to share with him, in terms of techniques and methods for developing games. By sharing knowledge and experience, he says, everyone benefits, which benefits the Irish game development industry as a whole.

The focus on Unity is due to the fact that it is extremely popular with Irish developers, but there’s a lack of knowledge and experience with it – especially in regards to programming in it. There is a lot of information out there on the basics, but the deeper you go the more fractured the information is.

To finish it off, it’ll be a great chance to meet with other developers and talk shop.

Just announced: The event will take place at tog in Dublin – see
