Toronto + Unity: First User Group Meeting

November 25, 2009 in Community, Company News and Info, Events by

Tony Garcia, Director of Business Development, and I went to Toronto recently for a whirlwind Unity tour like the one Tom Higgins did not too long ago in Vancouver. What can we say? We love supporting Canadanian Unity developers! It also helps that J. Joly over at OverInteractive Media keeps setting events like these up.

The actual events happened November 10th and 11th as a networking mixer for the launch of the Toronto Unity User Group (UUG) and a Unity Skills Workshop the next day. Tony did a keynote presentation at the Gladstone Hotel for the networking mixer and had a short Q&A with attendees. The next day, I did a three and a half hour workshop at George Brown College. Both events were packed full and it was great meeting so many Unity developers.

Mr. Joly and the other folks at OverInteractive Media are all about Unity and they’ve successfully kicked off three Unity Users Groups in Canada: Vancouver, Toronto, and Montreal. When they are not starting user groups, they are working on building dimeRocker: a soon-to-be-released distribution platform that will enable Unity game developers to both self-publish, monetize and grow traffic for their 3D multi-player game content across the social web, beginning with Facebook. Interested developers can join the closed Beta, which will launch November 25th at G-Star in Busan, Korea.

I have much respect for J. Joly and the gang from OverInteractive Media. The entire week was planned and managed by them. They secured many local sponsors to make the events happen. They even hosted us for a dinner at the Mildred Pierce Temple Kitchen as a way to thank us!
