Some awesome learning resources for Unity - more to come too!

Heya all, it's been a few months since I've been here.

We had baby #3 in December and took a lot of the summer off to enjoy some time with this lil guy (and the rest of the fam of course)

So now I'm back at it with tons of content and about 30 draft blog posts queued up needing completion :) I'm a big supporter of the Unity game dev community and co-run the Orange County CA Unity Meetup so join us if you are in SoCal!

The below are some learning resources I've done or a colleague, so check them out and I hope it gets you started. I have an awesome 2D lab coming shortly as well - stay tuned!

  1. Just want to say thanks for all the work!

    I am currently a Graduate Student in Media Design at Keio University Japan. Even though I had no experience with Unity or Programming before, I have taken on the challenge of developing a VR game-like experience that induces (informal) learning for my thesis project in this next year. Your Unity tutorials are a great help for starting out.

    I'll make sure to refer to your tutorials in the acknowledgements if all goes well!

  3. Hello Adam
    I don't know unity and would like to give a try
    I have discovered your series "Unity - Developing Your First Game with Unity and C#" on MSDN magazines 2014 but I'm not able to find the code anywhere because MSDN magazine links to GitHub ( http://bit.ly/20ZTmvB ) where there is no code anymore. Where can I find this code ?

    1. hmm.. I'll have to check on that. Note the other repo on my account for VampKid3d and VampKid vs Zombie Apocalypse. We have a new lab coming up soon as well off of https://github.com/Microsoft-Build-2016/CodeLabs-GameDev-1-Unity (not available quite yet)
