    Hi,

    I'm working on arranging a blender3d event sometime in the fall at the Nokia Campus in Copenhagen.

    As you may have heard Nokia is shutting down the R&D office here, but in the transition phase they want to help people move on and are thus sponsoring initiatives for start-ups and innovators. They are also planning on converting the main building into a new start-up house with new small companies and investors. I'm talking with the head of this bridge program about arranging a blender event there.

    I've recently become involved in blender development and has gotten interest from 2 core blender people.

    Then I came to think that it would be cool, to make this a combined blender/unity event. I'm guessing many participants would be from small indie start-ups wanting to do 3d games also for mobile, and I think unity would fit in very nicely here :)

    I'm meeting with the Nokia people later this week for initial talks, so what I'm looking for right now is just an indication of whether unity would be interested in participating.

    Rgrds,

    -Pelle Johnsen

    I can't promise anything, but I live quite close (Gothenburg, Sweden) and I think I qualify into the target audience (small indie dev). Sounds like a good idea BTW!

    Thanks, been doing that before posting here. Got a canned response with a link to the FAQ :confused:

    Also called the office, they took a message for someone to call me back, but so far haven't heard anything :confused:

    Sounds like an excellent idea, though I would not be able to attend.

    Working with blender myself.

    Hi there,

    I work and live in Copenhagen, and though I'm really a rookie in Unity, and only know the basics of Blender, i'd love to see an event you initiated!!
