What do YOU want to know about Unity but have been afraid to ask? Do you think your questions are too trivial to become an entire course? Every day Dr Penny de Byl receives messages from her students asking for assistance on a wide variety of topics that would benefit from a short tutorial.  In this course, Penny puts her 25 years of game development, research and teaching into practice to answer your questions in a variety of popular short workshop based tutorials.

Topics covered include:

The Unity Entity Component and Job System

Targeting Missiles

In–game Quest Systems

Reading and Writing to a Database

Animating Facial Expressions

Introduction to Augmented Reality for Android and iOS

Object Pooling

Working with Asset Bundles

Contents and Overview

Section 1:
The course begins with a section examining the new Unity Entity Component and Job System where you will build a planet simulation with 50,000 planets that orbit and are under the gravitational influence of four suns.

Section 2:
Following this, a section examining the creation of target–seeking missiles will cover basic line of sight missiles that remain locked onto a target, after being fired, as well as the addition of a waypoint system that gives missiles interesting curved and funky trajectories.

Instructor Details

Hi, I'm Dr Penny de Byl. I'm a full stack developer of most things computer sciency and academic with a true passion for teaching. I've been teaching others about games development, programming, computer graphics, animation and web design for over 25 years in universities in Australia and Europe at the full professor level. I've also consulted for Unity, SAE, the Australian Institute of Entertainment and Wikitude. My best selling textbooks including Holistic Game Development with Unity are used in over 100 institutions world-wide. My graduates work at companies like Apple, Ubisoft, LinkedIn and Deloitte Digital. I have an honours degree in computer graphics and a Ph.D. in artificial intelligence for games characters. Over the course of my career I've won numerous awards for teaching excellence at the state, national and international levels including the Australian Learning and Teaching Council's Excellence in Teaching Award and the Unity Mobile Game Curriculum Competition. My approach to teaching computer science and related fields is project-based giving you hands-on workshops you can immediately get your teeth into. I want you to leave my virtual classroom fully armed with a toolkit of skills for life-long learning. I'm excited to now be focussing my efforts full-time on Udemy to bring my years of knowledge and experience to those eager to learn about technology.

    Penny is great at teaching. This course has a nice concept of letting the audiance decide, so there are diverse subjects. Not a 5 star rating this time though because not all subjects in this course are what I found interesting.

    ECS is what I really wanted some in depth instruction on. I know this says deprecated…, but I am mostly interested in contemporary ECS information.

    Very early in… I was expecting a bit more advanced information from part 1 of the ECS system section. The entirety of this part one didn’t really do anything ECS related at all… It was just a simple set up of a scene and gameobjects for a very simple example. Personally, I think that could have been skipped entirely if the resources are shared. If a user is learning ECS this early on, it takes a much greater understanding of Unity and development in general than what it takes to setup such a simple project from premade resources, so it seems pointless to explain in such detail how to do this, rather than really diving straight into ECS which takes so much more to understand. I cant help but feel that the ECS information ahead is going to be incredibly shallow given that 30% of the section was setting up a non ecs scene. However, I do enjoy the teacher and the explanations/tutorial they are giving ARE very clear. This is my first Udemy course so I dont fully understand why its asking me for a review on the first section… I’m sure my opinion will change throughout the course.

    It’s hard to come up with good intermediate level projects ones that are built up enough to demonstrate a concept/technique without getting bogged down in implementation details. But Penny is great at it! I’m very familiar with Unity and with programming but I’m finding these walkthroughs very helpful as a basis for thinking about my own projects.

    I thought for a long time what can be written, because course is good enough without any comments, but I want to give a feedback to push it up. Dr. Penny’s courses (everyone) are some of the most useful in my collection. Unlike hobbyists, there are many mathematical and academic concepts that are skipped in most courses. Sometimes there are a lot of useful literary recommendations, and again, they are academic, not amateur. I am glad that the Ph.D. has created such good content for people who cannot apply to academia or university like me.

    She is clearly a practiced educator. She presents good examples explained concisely. There s not a lot of time wasted with typing code or editing bad code. Instead she explains the code clearly while also explaining the development choices that were made. Excellent. Thank you.

    Very useful content and topics! I would like to see some Unit Testing in future because there is not enough info about that out there. Than you!
