Unity 101 for C# Developers
Recommended by Microsoft for creating mixed reality experiences for the Hololens, Unity has transcended it’s beginnings as a cross-platform game engine.
So whether you are looking to create a 3D game for mobile, or have your sights set on a virtual reality experience for the Oculus Rift, Unity is a tool you’ll want to learn.
One surprise for C# developers getting started with Unity is the level of integration with Visual Studio and how simple it is to add C# code to manipulate their Unity creations.
In this demo led session we’ll go back to basics with Unity, creating a simple 3D game with realistic physics, textures and explosions. We’ll look at the fantastic Visual Studio integration and how cohesively the two editors work together.
Finally we’ll look at a more complex 3D experience and how to use Unity’s networking features to allow different users to interact in a 3D world.
Keeping the best news for last: Unity is royalty free until you’re earning $100,000. So if you like the idea of becoming wildly rich from making immersive 3D experiences, this is the talk for you!
