Both Unity and the Unity Community are growing faster than ever and it's time to invite everyone to our second Unity developer conference, Unite 2008. Once again the conference will be a three day technical event offering attendees a chance to learn more about Unity and the Unity Web Player and network with fellow members of the Unity community. Developers, educators, artists or anyone else interested in using Unity to develop top-quality games and entertainment content are invited to attend.

The conference will be held on October 22-24, 2008 at the Tycho Brahe Planetarium in Copenhagen, Denmark. Here is a brief overview of the conference agenda:

Keynote and road map presentations
9 1-hour technical sessions on a variety of topics
5 hours of hands-on lab time
Lots of time to get social and have fun!
Technical Sessions
There will be a total of nine one-hour technical sessions offered and they will each cover a unique topic that relates to using Unity to author and deploy great content. This year's conference will feature presenters from Unity Technologies and Unity Studios as well as from the Unity developer community.

Hands-On Lab
At the end of each day of the conference there will be time for hands-on lab. During this time attendees can work one-on-one with Unity staff to help answer outstanding questions or work through project-specific problems. There will be a number of work stations available so bring your laptop, your project files or just a head full of questions as this will be your chance to sit down with the experts to get help and advice so don't miss out.
