Unity 101 for C# Developers by Andy Clarke (@theMagicWeasel)


Recommended by Microsoft for creating mixed reality experiences for the Hololens, Unity has transcended its beginnings as a cross-platform game engine.

So whether you are looking to create a 3D game for mobile, or have your sights set on a virtual reality experience for the Oculus Rift, Unity is a tool you'll want to learn.
One surprise for C# developers getting started with Unity is the level of integration with Visual Studio and how simple it is to add C# code to manipulate their Unity creations.

In this demo led session, we’ll go back to basics with Unity, creating a simple 3D game with realistic physics, textures and explosions. We’ll look at the fantastic Visual Studio integration and how cohesively the two editors work together.
