About the Course

This course is all about starting to learn how to develop video games using the C# programming language and the Unity game engine on Windows or Mac. Why use C# and Unity instead of some other language and game engine? Well, C# is a really good language for learning how to program and then programming professionally. Also, the Unity game engine is very popular with indie game developers; Unity games were downloaded 16,000,000,000 times in 2016! Finally, C# is one of the programming languages you can use in the Unity environment. This course doesn't assume you have any previous programming experience. Don't worry if you've never written code before; we'll start at the very beginning and work our way up to building small games by the end of the course. Throughout the course you'll learn core programming concepts that apply to lots of programming languages, including C#, and you'll also learn how to apply those concepts when you develop games. Computer programming is really fun in general, and programming games is even better! Caution: Beginning (assuming no prior programming knowledge) is not the same as easy (not hard to do). Learning to program IS hard to do, especially since this course is essentially the first half of a freshman-level college course. Meeting the course challenges while you master the material will be rewarding to you, but doing that will require hard work and maybe even a few expletives along the way. Module 1: Write your first C# console application and Unity script Module 2: Learn how we store data in our programs Module 3: Learn how we use classes and objects to implement our code Module 4: Learn the basics of Unity 2D games and take "Final Exam" “Unity” is a trademark or registered trademark of Unity Technologies or its affiliates in the U.S. and elsewhere.

I took up this course as a refresher after a long hiatus, but this would be amazing if I was an absolute beginner too! Kudos to Dr. T and I'm excited to complete the rest of the specialization! 😍😍🤩🤩

Muy buen curso para introducirse a Unity, aunque un ejercicio nos pedían usar la clase Time sin habernos si quiera mencionado antes esa clase en el curso, sin embargo, buscando en la documentación lo pude resolver, después de eso, satisfecho con el curso.

This course gained basic knowledge of Unity and C# Programming. But the course is still need to update with new knowledge like manipulating audio and animations so that we can learn how to make a basic arcade game after learning this course.

It was a great course. Dr. T is an amazing and entertaining teacher. the slight problem I had with the course is the amount of unity classes and methods used, sometimes it was a bit overwhelming. Other than that it was a great experience.

I had a little background experience with programming before, but I must say, the assignments towards the end get a little challenging and I struggled for a few hours because there was not much clarification. But nothing impossible.

I like the course, but felt that the final exam was a bit tame. A 'you did it' video might be nice, but I still enjoyed the course despite having wanted one regarding C# with WEB development, not GAME development.

I learned a lot, but the course felt somewhat disjointed. It was really helpful to have the guidance of the course though, and I feel like I could start to make a game now with what I learned if I really wanted!

Good introduction to game scripting with Unity. Felt there is more scope to introduce difficulty in the programming assignments and exercises. Video quizzes where pointless and not witty enough to be worth it

I think the teacher shouldn´t take for granted some math subject. I couldn´t remember SIN and COS and pythagoras. if he had given a little explanation or one pdf about this point I would have rated 5 star

Even as a smooth brain such as myself I was able to learn the course pretty easily as its very easy to follow every lesson. I recommend greatly if you want to start coding.

Good course to step into game development especially with Unity. Helps revise basic C# skills as well. Fun professor with engaging and not very intensive content/lectures.

The last two assignments were a bit tough but that's okay when the required lessons for those have been well taught. They were kind of undercooked for the last two weeks.

It's alright if you've never done coding before. Coming into it with a bit of experience, it seemed a little slow, but the Unity portions were explained very well.

Great introduction to C# and Unity. Wish it had been expanded a little more to a full 5 weeks of material, but this still provides a solid foundation to build on.

I really like the course! It is very helpful and despite being focused on providing basic knowledge in may aspects it touches very important and useful subjects

After the selection control section the course jumped on large scripts which seemed bit uncomfortable, that's why a star less, but the overall course is great.

good introductions, I knew some things already from the unity tutorials, but I also learned, good way to get started with C# and unity, recommended.

Good course; relevant. Interesting examples.

Experienced programmers in other languages can run through this quickly and focus on Unity parts.

Great course! My only complaint is the difficulty spike on Week 3, as it can be tough, specially for those with no prior programming experience.

The course is fine, but I miss more documentation and resources, apart of the book that you need buy if you want to follow the course fluently.

Overall a good course, but the instructor using a four year old version of Unity and

Monodevelop can lead to some confusion time to time.

Some of the peer-review assignments were hard to understand because the instructions weren't very clear but the lessons were very helpful.

The most difficult was to understand how to run the program and not to solve it.Maybe a video for that part would help a lot new students

The course is good if you have some programming experience. But I think some of the materials here are little advanced for a beginner.
