Epic Details Epic Developer Day and Unreal University Evets

July 8, 2011 -

Epic Games announced its conference schedule for Epic Developer Day, to be held on July 13, and Unreal University, to be held on July 14, at De Vere West One in London. Epic Developer Day and Unreal University provide Unreal Engine 3 (UE3) developers with free hands-on learning led by senior members of Epic's engine team, UE3 technology partners and UE3 instructors. If you are a UE3 developer and don't have ticket's you're out of luck because it's sold out. On the plus side, Epic said today that it "plans to bring similar learning opportunities to other regions this year."

Epic Developer Day, which is open to anyone under Epic's non-disclosure agreement (NDA) for "commercial Unreal Engine 3 evaluation or full license," will offer two tracks: one for content creation and another for programming. Epic Games European Territory Manager Mike Gamble will open the conference, and Epic Games Senior Technical Artist and Senior Level Designer Alan Willard will offer a "how to get started with Unreal Engine 3: workshop. He'll also as well as present sessions on Unreal Engine 3 workflow, mobile development, shaders and DirectX 11. Epic Games Korea Support Manager Jack Porter will offer tutorials on UE3’s new foliage system, streaming, UE3’s new terrain editor Unreal Landscape,; optimization and stats analysis, and UE3 debugging tools and techniques.

Epic Developer Day will also feature several of Epic’s Integrated Partners Program (IPP) members including NVIDIA Technical Evangelist Phil Scott and APEX Product Manager Monier Maher, who will present sessions on APEX physics technology. NVIDIA Developer Technology Engineer Jon Jansen will discuss the benefits of DirectX 11 using UE3, and Geomerics’ Head of Technology Sam Martin and Lead UE3 Programmer Simon Taylor will discuss dynamic lighting in UE3. GRIP Entertainment President Dr. Paul Kruszewski will cover advanced AI tools, and NaturalMotion Technical Account Manager Mark Hobbs and Lead Integration Engineer Juan Pizarro will talk about character animation with morpheme in UE3.

The second day, dubbed Unreal University, is an academic initiative funded by Epic Games to offer hands-on guidance and learning to those interested in using Unreal Engine 3 (UE3) technology or the Unreal Development Kit (UDK). Epic Games European Territory Manager Mike Gamble will provide opening remarks, while the remainder of the presentation will be handled by Unreal University instructors James Tan and Markus Arvidsson.

Tan and Arvidsson will lead tutorials on UDK including how to make a racing game for iOS with UDK; level building in less than one hour; making a side-scrolling game for PC with Unreal Kismet; and becoming a digital movie director with UDK.

Andrew EisenI understand the skepticism but I don't think "this will never work" and "no one should even bother" are very healthy attitudes.03/27/2015 - 12:11pm
Andrew EisenWhy would you doubt that? A lot of writers are my age and older, the perfect age to be fans of the content. All I'm saying is it's not impossible to get a good Robotech movie. In fact, it's more likely today than any other time.03/27/2015 - 12:11pm
Matthew Wilson@AE the difference is in the case of marvel the writers and directors clearly understand the source content. I doubt many of any of them are that way with robotech, or any anime for that matter.03/27/2015 - 11:10am
MaskedPixelantehttp://www.playstationtrophies.org/news/news-15838-Sony-Cuts-the-Price-of-PlayStation-TV-Today.html Sony cuts the price of the Vita TV in the UK, still wont force developers to make their stuff compatible with it.03/27/2015 - 10:49am
Andrew EisenMechaCrash - It's true, there are a lot of examples of crap adaptations. But there are increasing numbers of great adaptations such as the Marvel movies. That said, it's certainly going to be an uphill battle at Sony, especially with Tom Rothman around.03/27/2015 - 10:45am
ZippyDSMleeOh live action crap...I dunno with hollywood being stuck in the 90s grimdarkblack mode I can not see how anything would work well other than SNK or Akira.. then again Akira is a bit of head trip...03/27/2015 - 10:11am
MechaCrashI meant Hollywood in general. If they did a Robotech movie, it'd just be a slightly tweaked Macross, because usually when people talk about Robotech, they just mean the first third. Nobody cares about the Masters/Southern Cross or Invid/MOSPAEDA stuff.03/27/2015 - 9:36am
ZippyDSMleeYes Macross is good..... robotech....not so much..... Now Pizza Cats that's the definitive TV dub, if not best dub ever I'd put it up there with COwboy Bebop just becuse the Pizza Cats dub is fun as heck and crazy,Medabots and Fighting Foodons are decent.03/27/2015 - 9:20am
InfophileAged well plot-wise, I mean. The animation is showing its age, but if you don't mind that, the plot holds up quite well03/27/2015 - 6:52am
InfophileRobotech may be 30 years old, but it's actually aged pretty well. Plus, one of the three Japanese franchises that went into making it, Macross, is coming out with a new series soon. So it's far from forgotten or out-of-date03/27/2015 - 6:50am
ZippyDSMleePapa Midnight: Care to take a look at this and tell me what you think about it? http://www.amazon.com/Frisby-FS-5010BT-Surround-Speakers-Bluetooth/dp/B00EYX1N2S/03/26/2015 - 10:27pm
Matthew Wilson@AE I think he means both.03/26/2015 - 9:23pm
ZippyDSMleeuhg either a nap after being up 30 hours or working on my comp blah. Oh wow when did the the all shout box page show 3 times as many shouts 0-o03/26/2015 - 8:30pm
Andrew EisenMechaCrash - Sony in particular or Hollywood in general?03/26/2015 - 7:38pm
Matthew Wilson@mach no way in hell, so that is why I want them to stay away.03/26/2015 - 7:21pm
MechaCrash"Get the movie right" is preferable to "stay away," but do you really think they won't screw it up?03/26/2015 - 7:19pm
Craig R.And yes, 90's games. Damn near all of my fav computer & console games were from that decade03/26/2015 - 7:00pm
Craig R.I'd take the NCAA seriously if they'd bite instead of bark03/26/2015 - 6:59pm
