Introductions

Hey Everyone,
I’ve been tinkering around with making games for a few years now. I live in the state of Utah from the United States and really enjoy coding and making games and want to brush up on my Unity skills for a new game I’m working on. I loved the first edition of this class and look forward to what this new one has to over.

What’s up?
Been coding on and off for ever now and finally have the time to give it my full attention. Always enjoyed programming in highschool, so it’d be great to really get into it and take it serious. Currently living in MO wrking weekends, so i plan to use my weekdays more productively to excel my skills for the future.

Hello,
Keith here from York in the UK, new to games programming but not to IT. I worked as a programmer and support person for many years on a variety of systems IBM, Unix, PCs etc. I retired a while ago and have been looking at ways to continue to use computing for interest and possibly a bit of supplementary income. TBH I am looking at Unity as more than a games platform, I would like to use it for educational interaction particularly for VR and AR applications in the historical environment (I have an archaeology degree). Having said that I am not averse to games programming and am also interested in board and wargames simulations, not to mention a long standing interest in AI. So I am hoping this course will work as a basis for learning Unity and use it as a platform for exploring these interests.

Hello Gamedev community!
My name is Jacob and I’m a musician and game lover, looking to expand my skills to include coding and video game creation. My ultimate goal is to create games and multi-media content that challenge the ways in which people think about important issues, such as climate change, lgbt rights, and women’s rights.

I want to dismantle stigmas within, and about, the game community and create art that changes our world.
I look forward to taking this course and participating in the forums!

Hey there! I’m Sean, from the Netherlands. I’ve been wanting to get into game development for years but never really knew where to start so this is the perfect opportunity to finally make it happen. The course is looking promising so far.

I’m hoping to be a bit active in this community as I think it’s a great and fun way to stay engaged, focused and motivated for the course.

Hey all. I’m Gareth, from North Wales. I’ve been programming on and off since I was 5 years old on my trusty ZX Spectrum (I’m now in my early 40s), and now work mainly with SQL and Reporting Services, but do a little bit of C# and Javascript programming alongside (also currently learning the Angular framework). I’ve always been interested in game development but have never really been any good at it. I think my last attempt to learn any of this, aside from a very brief look at XNA about 10-15 years ago, was through AMOS on the Amiga back in the mid 1990s. I decided to give Unity a try a few weeks ago and have followed a few YouTube tutorials, so I know the very basics, but this course looked good so I signed up. Following a course like this is better than individual YT videos that have little structure. Looking forward to it.

I picked up Unity as a free way to extend my hobby and thought this course would be the best way to get some structured content.
