Class Class: Intro to Unity Scripting

Take your first steps into the powerful world of C# game coding!

 


Class DescriptionDon’t be afraid to program!! You may have no experience with Unity scripting or perhaps you have cut and pasted other people’s scripts into your own projects, but now it’s time to build confidence in your ability to create your own scripts. In this whirlwind introduction using C#, we will examine the fundamental building blocks of every program. We will also look at the basic actions every program does: assignment, testing, branching, and looping. Using simple examples we will lay out the groundwork for your future programming efforts and point you towards resources to continue your coding adventures...
