Have you ever thought about how computer games are built, how you can create interactive frontends for hardware interfacing or integrate VR into your projects? I know I have. However, game engines are incredibly complex suite of software and it can be difficult to grasp due to unavoidably steep learning curves. Fortunately, the hardest part is figuring out how to get started, and that is precisely what this workshop is all about.
As the first event in a series of workshops aimed at helping you explore how games are created, figure out how to integrate virtual environments with microcontroller hardware, and observe Object-Oriented Programming in action, this 3-hour hands-on session is dedicated to:
- Set up Unity Hub: Unity is one of the most popular ecosystems for cross-platform game and interactive environment projects.
- Basic navigation of the Unity Editor: Learn the core components of the UI and how to get around the 3D world.
- Build and manipulate objects: Create and modify raw objects in the game.
- Basic Scripting: Using Visual Studio C#, learn how to programmatically
control object behaviour, making them respond to human input (and/or serial communications)
