9:00am - 6:00pm

Level: Introductory to Intermediate

Adam Tuliper

Principal Software Engineer, DX


Unity is the premier advanced platform for developing stunning 2D and 3D applications for all major platforms. Microsoft and Unity have partnered to provide first class support in the Unity platform for Windows 10 for free to developers, rounding out support for every major platform. This workshop will give you a hands-on run through the essential concepts in a gaming engine, such as textures, meshes, normals, vectors, shaders, and more.

Then, you'll write code and use tools to create both 2D and 3D apps that will simply amaze you. You'll also work through the basics of Unity, the UI, assets, code, ways to develop, and some simple but powerful game techniques to get up and running fast with Unity and start creating amazing experiences you didn't think were possible. Finally, you'll learn how to package various platform specific builds in Unity (which btw supports more than 21 platforms).

You will learn:

  • The core concepts used in game development
  • The architecture of Unity and how to code for it
  • How to write both 2D and 3D games/experiences in Unity
