From C++ fundamentals to advanced
What you’ll learn
- Fundamental C++ into Advanced
- Basic 2D Game Development
This course includes:
- 17 hours on-demand video
- 17 downloadable resources
- Full lifetime access
- Access on mobile and TV
- Certificate of completion
- Windows Operating System recommended
In this course I’ll start out your C++ journey from the beginning and move you through advanced whilst moving towards making a little dungeon game.
Everything is in here from the very starting points, so the course is good for beginners or those returning to C++ who want to brush up on their skills. At the college I used to teach at, this content would cover subjects C++ 1, C++ 2 and Basic Game Dev with C++ (each of those subjects cost like $1.5k AUD). If you are studying at a Uni or College, this course makes a good companion resource for those you with C++ subjects.
Through out the course I provide project check points and reference projects if you get lost along the way. This course runs a bit over 16hrs, so take your time on it. Here is a list of some of the things we run through on this course:
- variables and math
- input and output
- if statement, while and for loops
- arrays, 1d and 2d
- classes, inheritance and polymorphism
- pointers and dynamic memory
- rendering and animation
- basic 2d game logic
- and a bunch more!
If you are interested in developing amazing, commercial quality games that are playable on a variety of platforms, then you’ve come to the right place. This Unity course is the only one of its kind that is approved by Unity Technologies on Udemy. What better way to learn how to develop games in Unity than with their authorized course? The Ultimate Guide to Game Development with Unity introduces you to the Unity Engine and to the fundamentals of C# programming. The course then dives into developing your first 2D and 3D games. You will discover how to set your games apart from the crowd by polishing them with Unity’s latest features, including post-processing effects and the animation system.
In this Unity course, you will:
- Master C# concepts such as variables and if statements
- Detect collisions, receive user input, and create player movements
- Create power ups including triple shots, laser beams, speed boosts, and shields
- Apply shaders that transform your game backgrounds
- Create enemies with basic AI behavior
- Collect and destroy game objects
- Implement sound effects, background music, and particle effects
- Activate and use Unity’s Team Collaboration service
- Navigate the Unity Engine and discover unique features such as the Asset Store
- Deploy your game to over 20 web or mobile platforms using Unity
- And more!
This Unity course also includes over 50 interactive challenges (New Content Added Weekly!) where you can test your knowledge with concepts you’ve just learned. These challenges will help you build two commercial quality games: a 2D Galaxy Shooter Game with polished sprites and cinematic effects, and a 3D first person controller game. Get access to the unique artwork provided by this Unity course and add sophisticated features to your games that make you look like you’ve been programming for years.
Why Learn Game Development with Unity?
The gaming industry is a $100 billion industry worldwide. By 2020, that number is expected to near $120 billion. With Unity being the most widely used engine to develop games across multiple platforms, there has never been a better time to get into the field. As you will learn, the types of games you can create with Unity and C# are limitless. Game development makes a great hobby, allowing you to learn a new skill and play your game with family and friends. It is also an exciting and rewarding career, where plenty of successful developers, including myself, have learned the fundamentals of game development through courses like this, and not in the traditional classroom setting. Every great game starts somewhere, so why not make it yours? While people often find coding or making games intimidating, this Unity course utilizes a unique teaching method which will allow you to gain a thorough understanding of concepts while you develop your own games. Thanks to the Unity community, you’ll be able to connect with other developers, work together on new projects, and make some incredible games!
Why Learn From Me
This is the first and only Unity game development course that has been co-created with Unity Technologies on Udemy. Because learning to code can be daunting, Unity Technologies wanted to create a course that helps new developers feel comfortable exploring the engine and developing games. I believe that the best way to learn how to code is by doing. Therefore, this is a highly interactive series that does not spoon-feed you the answers. The unique challenges integrated throughout this Unity course will ensure you not only know how to code something, but you also understand the logic behind it. As a self-taught software engineer, I found that there simply weren’t any high-quality video tutorials that allowed beginners to truly grasp concepts essential to game development. To remedy this, I created my own YouTube video series focused on Unity game development, where I’ve had the privilege of helping thousands of other people grow their passion for game development.
I’ve been working in Unity since the initial public release of version 2.6, and I’ve authored a book on Unity 3.X. Since beginning my career in software development, I’ve been fortunate enough to develop games for Cartoon Network, Adult Swim, and several indie game companies. I’ve also developed enterprise augmented reality applications for Fortune 500 companies like Coca-Cola, GE, and Thyssenkrupp. Teaching has always been a passion of mine, and I hope you will see that throughout this course.
Upon completing this Unity course, you will understand the basic concepts of C# programming and be able to continue developing your own 2D and 3D games. You will also feel confident knowing that you have mastered the latest and greatest game development techniques that will propel you to success in your professional or personal aspirations.
C++ is still very relevant in many software engineering jobs but also to lots of game engines such as Unreal. Its a good starting language for many looking to get into software development of some kind.
Let’s make a sweet dungeon game!
