9 Participants

The annual Unity Developer Day conference tour is coming to Québec for the first time ever — join us for an exciting day of development talks, games, and more at Unity Developer Day: Montréal this May 19th!

Unity Developer Day is a 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 Montréal edition brings together local game creators and Unity staff to share their expertise through a full-day conference track, networking lunch, and showcase of local games and projects made with Unity.
Expert Unity evangelists and staff will give talks focused on how local developers can get the most out of their work with Unity and its services. They'll cover topics like Unity's Entity Component System / C# Job System, Shader Graph, Machine Learning, Scriptable Render Pipeline, Photogrammetry, & more!
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.


We're thrilled to introduce our Keynote speakers - Jongwoo Kim (Kitfox Games) & Richard Atlas (Clever Endeavor Games) will be opening the event with a special presentation - $0 to $1 Million: The Raw Numbers Behind Indie Success!
The co-founders will compare and contrast financial realities and the different paths of success for their Montreal-based studios using Unity. Their experiences will inspire and enlighten attendees of all backgrounds on the survival strategies behind independent game development and more.
