Unity Learn is up!
Today's post is a little different from my other posts. When I make a post its usually about something I am working on or something I am doing. What I want to talk about today is Unity "Learn".
Unity has recently put up a new section on their website labeled as "Learn" and it is for exactly what it is labeled as; learning Unity. This is a really awesome new section the Unity team has put up. It is filled with many different tutorials and I believe it is something that will be updated often with new tutorials and lessons.
"Learn" is not just for new people who are starting out with Unity but it is for every user. Beginner or advanced, there are useful tutorials up there and that will be added in the future. There is a section up for learning literally anything within Unity such as scripting, the interface, graphics, etc.
What else is there? aside from the tutorials there is also live online training classes offered by Unity that users can sign up for. This is a really useful new feature for people who want to ask questions while learning and receive answers straight from the professionals. There are also tutorial projects Unity has up in the learn section that will teach you how to create different types of games. At the moment of this blog post, Unity currently has the first tutorial game project you can work through that will teach users how to create a fully functional stealth game. All of the assets for the project are already provided when you start going through it which is pretty cool.
So if you are new to Unity, new to game development or a Unity guru but want to further improve your knowledge I highly recommend checking out the new "Learn" section. There is always something new to learn. I started using learning Unity in 2011 and I know there is still a lot more I need to learn. This learn section wasn't available when I started so learning Unity was a little more complicated, but now anyone can easily just jump right into learning how to use the awesome game engine.
As you know from my recent blog posts, I have been spending the time learning more and further improving my game development skills before I dive into my next game project. At the moment I am very focused on improving my 3d art skills and I have already greatly improved. Next I will definitely start taking a look through Unity learn.
I plan on working through that stealth game tutorial project I mentioned above that Unity has put out sometime. So, when I do I will probably start posting about the progress on it. And if anyone else is also working through that project at the time we can help each other and discuss it.
So I look forward to that and gaining a even deeper understanding of Unity and game development and I hope some of you guys do to. With all that said, that's all for now and I will see you next time.
