FITC Amsterdam Will Be Epic

I’m really looking forward to FITC Amsterdam this year.  Not only is it my first time in Amsterdam, but there are some killer sessions I can’t wait to attend.  Here’s a snapshot of the ones I’m looking forward to:

Multiplatform 3D Content Development Made Easy – Tom Higgins

Unity Evangelist Tom Higgins will give an overview of the award-winning Unity platform for creating games and rich 3D applications for the desktop, web, mobile devices and consoles.

Making A Molehill Out Of A Mountain – Mike Jones

One of the most popular feature requests for the Flash Player has been hardware 3D support. And this session will talk about it.
