This Coursera course is amazing. I’m in the middle of the third course and i have a very decent handle on Unity and C# :)

Thoughts on CU's Coursera Specialization on C# Programming for Unity Game Development?

Hi everyone,

I am interested in the C# Programming for Unity Game Development Specialization offered by the University of Colorado through Coursera. Just wanted to hear from anyone who has had experience with this course series and whether they would recommend diving into it.

I'm also planning to try out Code Academy's Learn C# course before getting into the Coursera class, so any thoughts on that option would be appreciated as well.

Thank you!

I'm currently taking the following course from Coursera. So far so good.

If you are using Unity, I recommend the Coursera specialization : C# Programming for Unity Game Development. It's completely free to audit, meaning you have access to all courses but cannot interact with teachers/students and will not get a certificate at the end.

For the longest time I wanted to start game dev and this is what finally got me into actually making games. If you already know programming (which was my case) you will breath through some of the sections and you will be able to focus on game development.

After you have some standing ground, I recommend doing some short game jams (2-3 days). Not only will you gain experience making the game, you will also play a lot of other games which will undoubtedly give you ideas for your next ones.

Good luck on your journey!

This may be worth looking at: https://www.coursera.org/specializations/programming-unity-game-development

However I would note that if you're thinking of doing this commercially it is a very long path especially if you're doing it part time, you're looking more a long the lines of 5 years rather than a few months if you want to make it all yourself.

There are two (at least) really courses on C# that teach it in the context of Unity.

If you need more structure to keep you motivated, like being in a class with assignments and being reviewed, I recommend the Coursera class. Both are very good.

Two excellent courses I've found for Unity are:

https://www.coursera.org/specializations/programming-unity-game-development

and https://www.coursera.org/learn/game-development?specialization=game-development

The 2nd one I've completed and I loved it, they let you make one solar system simulation and two 3d demo games. Course made it easy to understand how Unity and assets works. The first course is more programming oriented, in second one they give you pre-made scripts.

when I did it it (at least 3 years ago) it was Colorado and XNA

we spent way too much time learning to write proper documentation

and he kept trying to make jokes during the videos, but they were just lame and it took away from the course

this is the one I did https://www.coursera.org/learn/game-programming

I see you're talking about this one

https://www.coursera.org/specializations/programming-unity-game-development

same teacher though

maybe he's better now

but you could also try Ben Tristem's 4 courses for almost the same cost as one month of coursera courses ($49 per month)

and Brackeys has lots of great youtube videos
