The workshop will be a 4 part series taking place on Saturday afternoons over the span of two months. Each workshop will begin with a 35-45 minute talk by a local game developer on a specific topic within Unity. Following a quick break, we then jam for two hours on the topic that was discussed individually or as a part of a group.
