Event Details

Unity3D is the most robust, popular, and adaptable game engine used by indie game developers today. This thorough two day workshop will focus on getting you up to speed and productive in Unity, and walk you through step by step on creating a full, simple game from scratch.
 
We'll be going over:
  • How to navigate and use Unity's GUI effectively
  • Basics of practical C# scripting for games
  • Fundamentals of a Unity Workflow
  • Overview of fast prototyping in Unity
  • Good programming structure in Unity3D
  • Publishing the game online and on mobile/other platforms
  • And the big one: Creating a game from complete scratch from start to finish
  • Including: GameObject manipulation, collision events, 3D workflow, UI creation, exporting to web, and more!
 
Timeline:
A week before the lesson, we will be taking a vote on what type of game we'll be creating. That is, if you really want us to make a Flappy Bird clone, or a simple turn-based strategy game, then we'll do it in front of you and teach you how!
 
The workshop will run from 6:00PM to 9:00PM both days. The first day will go through all of the Unity3D basics and get you up to speed and productive, and have you start on our game we'll be making from scratch. The second day will be a pre-prepared intensive, live coding session where we'll explain every step and the reasoning behind it. 

The last stretch of the workshop will be a freeform coding improvisation where students will make suggestions on what we should add to the game, which we'll implement in front of you!
 
And lastly, for both days, we will hold extra hours after in which you are free to ask us any questions whatsoever!

## Students MUST BRING

A laptop with Unity installed. Go to the site and click download. We'll be using the free version of Unity. If you want to use Pro or the Pro trial, that's completely fine too.

## IT MUST BE INSTALLED. SERIOUSLY.

It's huge, don't expect to be able to download and install it here. If you don't have it,  you'll seriously be missing out, though you can still come. Open it at least once to make sure it works, too! I'll try to help anyone troubleshoot before we start. 

Again,

OPEN IT AT LEAST ONCE. MAKE SURE IT WORKS!
