Connect and learn at GDC Summer
Level up your artist skills and network with Unity experts during Game Developer Conference Summer (GDC Summer), taking place online August 4–6, 2020.
While this year’s GDC is a much more intimate affair than in years past, it has been and will always be an event about ensuring the success of your creative endeavors – from concept to commercialization. Join us online at GDC Summer to network, have your questions answered, and level up your artistic skills.
Learn about improved artist workflows
At GDC Summer we’ll debut an all-new recorded session, “Iterate faster with improved artist workflows in Unity” (August 4 at 2 pm PST), where Housein Cornell and Mike Geig from Unity’s Technical Marketing team will be showing how artists and designers can enhance their workflows for a faster and more efficient production pipeline.
You’ll learn best practices for roundtripping content between professional 3D tools and Unity while also learning how to use several of Unity’s artist-friendly features like ProBuilder, Cinemachine, Timeline, and the newly added Bolt visual scripting (for rapid prototyping without writing code).
Connect and network with Unity experts
Just because we can’t meet in person doesn’t mean we can’t connect. Unity will be hosting its own virtual exhibitor booth where we’ll be ready to chat with you about how we can help you succeed with Unity. We’ll have Unity experts and gaming sales representatives ready to chat. Here’s who’s waiting for you at the Unity booth:
- Mark Schoennagel (Technical Marketing Manager, Games)
- Ben Radcliffe (Creator Advocate, Media & Entertainment)
- Carol Trang (Community Manager)
- Conall Jennings (Gaming Sales Representative)
- Jevin Tryon (Gaming Sales Representative)
Whether or not you are attending GDC Summer, we are always interested in chatting with creators about how to make the most out of Unity features, products, and services. Reach out to our sales team or join us over on the Unity forum.
