Welcome to the Unity Crash Course
The Crash Course is all about getting you up to speed quickly. The goal is to give you a solid and basic foundation on what Unity is and how it works, providing you with the “big picture” or the full overview of working in Unity. Instead of walking you through hours of step-by-step tutorials, the Crash Course will quickly take you through the entire Unity workflow. By not focusing on granular steps, you’ll quickly get a broader understanding of Unity and thus have a solid foundation of knowledge that you can continue to build upon through other tutorials.
What do I need?
You need a copy of Unity and a few hours to spare. The course uses Unity Pro 4 to cover a wide-range, however, you can also follow along with the free version of Unity as well. You won’t miss anything using the free version. You can download a free copy of Unity from their site. The Crash Course uses the free “Angry Bots” demo project to illustrate concepts. The “Angry Bots” project comes with Unity, so you’ll have everything you need to get started.
Break Out Sessions
Once you’ve checked out the Crash Course and are ready to move forward, we will be offering break out sessions to go more in-depth on topics covered throughout the Crash Course. The break outs will take a closer look at topics such as particles, dynamics, animation and mecanim. The break outs will require a Citizen membership and will be ongoing with new content.
