The Ultimate C# and Unity course for beginners
What you'll learn
- You can dive into the course exactly where you want. If you already know programming, you can skip ahead and start at one of the more advanced parts.
- You will learn C# programming from scratch. No prior knowledge of any programming language is required. We will start by learning all the basics.
- You will learn object-oriented programming. We will use C# to it’s full potential by learning about classes and objects.
- You will learn about the core of game development by creating your own 2D game with animated sprites without the help of any game engine.
- You will learn what’s happening behind the scenes in a game engine like Unity.
- You will learn how to take your own ideas and bring them to life in the Unity game engine.
- Mac or PC capable of running Unity
- A copy of the latest version of Unity available for free
- A copy of visual studio available for free
This course is all you need, if you want to learn how to create games in Unity. You can’t create games in unity without knowing how to code, that’s why we will spend the first part of the course learning how to code C#.
This course will teach you best practices and teach you how to program. In this course you will not only learn how to do things, but also why we do things.
No prior knowledge is required because you will learn everything you need to know right here! When you are done with this course, you will be able to take your own game ideas and bring them to life in Unity.
The course is divided into 3 main sections:
Section 1 – Basic programming
In this section we will get to know our tools and get a basic understanding of C#. We will end the section by creating our very first complete game in the console.
Section 2 – Object oriented programming
In this section you will learn about classes and objects. These are the building blocks of every game. When you are done with this section you will know everything you need to know about C# before we dive into the world of Unity.
We will end this section by creating our very own complete game with animated sprites, without using any game engine or frame work. We will use all the knowledge that we have acquired in section 1 and 2 to create this game.
Section 3 – Unity
In this section we will learn about the Unity game engine and editor. Because we have learned everything we need to know about C# in the previous section, we will be able to focus all our efforts on Unity.
We will end this section by creating a complete game in Unity.
Who this course is for:
- Aspiring game developers and enthusiastic people who wants to dive into the world of game development.
Who am I?
My Name is Kenneth R. Andersen, and I'm 33 years old. I live in Denmark with my 2 kids and my wife.
I am an AP.Graduate in Computer Science from a Danish Game Academy called Dania Games. I finished my degree back in June 2012.
From 2012 till 2015 I managed to take a bachelor degree in web development at the same time as I was working a full time job.
Even though that it's a while since I learned how to program myself, I do remember how hard it was to get into the programming mindset. This is also something I'm using when I'm teaching. I'm always trying to remember how I learned these things myself, and what worked and what didn't work when I had to learn how to program.
When I finished my degree back in 2012, the academy hired me as a full time teacher. Which means, that it is almost 5 years since I started teaching professionally. When I started I was only 23 years old, which seems very young. lots of my students back then were the same age or older than me but it didn't matter at all. I still got great feedback from my classes, and I learned a lot from teaching (and I still do). Below are the subjects that I'm currently teaching on the academy:
UML & Designpatterns
Basic C# programming
Object oriented C# programming
Artificial intelligence in games
Programming VR Games
I currently run a youtube channel called inscopestudios. It's a channel dedicated to programming lectures. My main focus is on unity3d and that's also what I want to focus on here on Udemy. I'm almost up to 10k subscribers (something that I'm very proud of). So if your are looking for some great free lectures on C# programming or Unity, then don't forget to check out my channel.
I'v been running the channel in a more serious manner for a little more than a year. I started focusing more on the channel and uploading videos more frequently because of the positive feedback I got from the early videos I uploaded. The feedback inspired me and made me wanna do more.
Why I wanna make courses on
Multiple subscribers on my youtube channel has told me to start making courses here on Udemy. They told me that my courses on youtube are as good or better than some of the courses they are paying for here on Udemy, and that they would encourage me to create some courses for Udemy. Based on that I figured that it would be a great ide to give Udemy a try.
I'm sure that I'll be able to contribute a lot to the page by creating great programming courses. Of course I also hope that Udemy will bring me closer to my dream of being self employed by creating online programming courses.
Philosophy behind my teaching style
The word teach is very important to me. I always teach my students why we do something, and how it works. In other words, I don't make programming tutorials that you can follow without knowing what's going on. I will teach you how to program. If you end up completing parts of my course without understanding what's going on, then I'm not doing my job right.
