Unity3D: make coding fun apps fun again
Let us be honest here: we all know coding can be fun. However, not all applications we build are fun. In this session we will focus on creating fun applications in surprising ways you probably did not think about before. We will explore the tool of choice for his: Unity3D. Unity3D is the true multiplatform engine and environment if you want to create performant and great looking apps running on Windows desktop, Windows Store apps, iOs, Android and much more devices and platforms. Unity3D started out as a game environment but it can do so much more. Today it supports dozens of operating systems and platforms and runs on a whole smorgasbords of devices. With Unity3D we can create simple games or we can create complete virtual worlds. We can even build Holographic apps for the HoloLens with Unity3D.
We will explore the possibilities of Unity3D, we will have a look at the tools we have, we will investigate the C# coding that comes with the tool and we will learn about the strong and weak points of this environment. If you feel the need for more creativity, join us and learn all about creative coding in Unity3D.
