Workshop Details

In this workshop, learn how to get started making real-time interactive content using the C# programming language and the Unity game engine. The demand for both 2D and 3D real-time content is growing at an incredible pace. Rich interactive experiences have been present in the gaming industry for decades, but now that same set of expectations has made its way into websites, apps, and other forms of media. Whether you're creating WebGL marketing campaigns, AR product previews, interactive architectural walkthroughs, or you just want to try making video games, Unity is the best launch pad for your real-time applications.
