Course Details

The perfect foundational course for Unity and C# scripting. Through collaborative in-class experiences and short exercises you’ll learn key Unity development concepts. In 4 weeks you’ll create a character controller, learn about prefabs, trigger actions, make basic animations, and use coroutines to execute code over time. By the end you’ll be comfortable writing scripts and have a few portfolio pieces.

Week 1

  • Get a cube to move with a script in your first pair programming exercise
  • Create a GitHub repository
  • Intro to objects, transforms, and hierarchy

Week 2

Learn to make things happen with triggers and collision detection. Plus dig into objects and prefabs, as well as Unity's input system.

  • A functioning third person controller
  • Learn instantiation of prefabs, adding force to projectiles, and Unity’s Physics system

Week 3

Requirements

Although open to motivated beginners, this course is best suited for students with some previous programming experience.

Required Experience

Unity : None

C# Coding : None

This program introduces students with some programming experience to the Unity platform and programming in C#. If you do not have programming experience, the course will be more difficult; however, this course was created to function as a formal introduction to C#, so it is possible to use it as an introductory programming course.
