There will be also loads of cool giveaways during the day and all delegates who stay for the day will get something. No one will go away empty handed.
For those developers who are using Unity and shipping Android games, we’ll have engineers there to show folks how easy it is to add x86 support with Unity 4.6 (currently close beta that we can get them access to).
A chance to meet new contacts, enjoy great food and play new games!”
