Game Development with Unity from an Android Point of View

Julien Salvi

Senior Android Engineer

Developing mobile games with Unity has become more and more popular these years, and Unity developers often need to tackle OS specific challenges.

Through this talk you will discover how to work with Unity as an Android Developer. You will see how to build Unity plugins using the JNI and Java/Kotlin, which is the most efficient way to link Unity with the Android framework.

Every Unity project can be exported as an Android Studio project with a Gradle support. You'll also see how you can integrate Unity inside a native Android Java/Kotlin application, or how to get a full control of the build process so you can benefit from the best of both worlds.

Into the Android world for almost 10 years (scary Eclipse dark time!), I experienced California startup way of life before coming back to France. I am currently a Senior Android Engineer at Aircall where we are building the best phone system for modern businesses. Alongside Android, I have a great interest in backend development with Kotlin and AR/VR technology. In 2021, I became an Android GDE to continue my journey to always share and learn with the Android community.
On my spare time, I am a world traveler and a beer lover always looking for the best IPAs!
