To help kick start the Unity Users Group in Toronto, dimeRocker.com in partnership with Unity Technologies and Telefilm's New Media Fund invites all local game, web, and iPhone developers to a premiere Unity Networking Event followed the next day by a Unity Skills Development Workshop.

The entire initiative will be framed within a "web-ready" context, exploring how tools like Unity in combination with a new breed of social gaming hives are enabling developers to create, market, and monetize console-like browser content for a growing audience of online and mobile gamers.
