February Meeting: Introduction to Unity 3D

Join us and TekPartners on Tuesday, February 25, at 6:00 PM in the Mt. Kilimanjaro/Mt. Everest rooms of the Charlotte Microsoft Campus. INETA is turning 12 in February and you’re invited to celebrate with us! Matt Duffield will present a high level overview of Unity 3D and what it takes to build a simple game. With the release of Unity 4.3, you can now develop awesome games in 2D. Don’t worry; you can still use all of your awesome C# skills to develop your games. Unity allows developers to build really cool games and target pretty much every device and console that is available. Come out and see what it takes to build a game!

The meeting presenter is Matt Duffield.
