Complete C# Unity Developer 2D – Learn to Code Making Games

Description

September 2018 – We have completely updated the first 6 projects to Unity 2018! The following 4 projects are in the process of being replaced (TileVania is Unity 2017). All original content is available to course students in an additional free course.

This course started as a runaway success on Kickstarter and has gone on to become the most popular and most watched Unity course on Udemy. The course has full English closed-captions throughout.

Learn how to create video games using Unity, the world-leading free-to-use game development tool. We start super simple so you need no prior experience of Unity or coding! With our online tutorials, you’ll be amazed what you can achieve right from the first moment you start the course.

Benefit from our world-class support from both other students, and the GameDevtv team who are regularly engaged in the forums and Q&A section. Go on to build several games including:

  • Laser Defender: A Top-Down Space Shooter with enemies to shoot and dodge;
  • Glitch Garden: A Tower Defense game with different tower types and enemy types, and a basic resources system;
  • TileVania: A fast-paced classic Side-Scrolling Platformer using Unity’s Tilemap tool;
  • Block Breaker: A basic “Breakout” style game which introduces Unity’s built in physics engine.

You will have access to a course forum where you can discuss topics on a course-wide basis, or down to the individual video. Our thriving discussion forum will help you learn and share ideas with other students. Check out our reviews to see how people love this feature.

Unity 2018 Remaster: This well-loved and highly-tuned course is taught initially in Unity 4 and then in following sections in Unity 5. This content is still incredibly valuable and relevant. As part of our ongoing commitment to our students, we are remastering the entire course in Unity 2018 to show you the newer tools that Unity has to offer.

The course is project-based, so you will not just be learning dry programming concepts, but applying them immediately to real indie games as you go. All the project files will be included, as well as additional references and resources – you’ll never get stuck. There are talking-head videos, powerful diagrams, quality screencasts and more.

Oh, and it’s just bigger and better than other Unity courses you will find online. See the course length and the reviews.

For each demo game you build you will follow this process…

  • Be challenged to build the entire game yourself.
  • Be shown step-by step how to build it.
  • Be challenged to apply, and re-apply your knowledge regularly.

You will get full lifetime access for a single one-off fee. The creators are qualified and experienced coders and avid gamers, so are able to explain complex concepts clearly, as well as entertain along the way.

You will learn C#, and in turn build a solid foundation for Object Oriented Programming.                                                                By the end of the course you’ll be very confident in the basics of coding and game development, and hungry to learn more.

What this course DOESN’T cover…

Whereas this course is already huge, we can’t possibly cover everything in that time. Here are some things we will not be covering…

  • Performance optimization.
  • Editor plugins or modifications.
  • Physics engine modification*

* Separate mini-course to cover these this now available.

Anyone who wants to learn to create games: Unity is a fantastic platform which enables you to make production-quality games. Furthermore these games can be created for Windows, MacOS, iOS, Android and Web from a single source!

If you’re a complete beginner, we’ll teach you all the coding and game design principles you’ll need. If you’re an artist, we’ll teach you to bring your assets to life. If you’re a coder, we’ll teach you game design principles.

Note: access to this course comes with an optional, free community site where you can share games and art assets, as well as connect with other students.

Dive in now, you won’t be disappointed!

Who is the target audience?

  • Competent and confident with using a computer.
  • Artists who want to learn to bring their assets into games.
  • Some programming experience helpful, but not required.
  • Complete beginners who are willing to work hard.
  • Developers who want to re-skill across to game development.

React 16 – The Complete Guide (incl. React Router 4 & Redux)

Description

What’s this course about?

Learn React or dive deeper into it. Learn the theory, solve assignments, practice in demo projects and build one big application which is improved throughout the course: The Burger Builder!

More details please!

JavaScript is the major driver of modern web applications since it’s the only programming language which runs in the browser and hence allows you to provide highly reactive apps. You’ll be able to achieve mobile-app like user experiences in the web.

But using JavaScript can be challenging – it quickly becomes overwhelming to create a nice web app with vanilla JavaScript and jQuery only.

React to the rescue! 

React is all about components – basically custom HTML elements – with which you can quickly build amazing and powerful web apps. Just build a component once, configure it to your needs, dynamically pass data into it (or listen to your own events!) and re-use it as often as needed.

Need to display a list of users in your app? It’s as simple as creating a “User” component and outputting it as often as needed.

This course will start at the very basics and explain what exactly React is and how you may use it (and for which kind of apps). Thereafter, we’ll go all the way from basic to advanced. We’ll not just scratch the surface but dive deeply into React as well as popular libraries like react-router and Redux.

By the end of the course, you can build amazing React (single page) applications!

A detailed list with the course content can be found below.

Who’s teaching you in this course?

My name is Maximilian Schwarzmüller, I’m a freelance web developer and worked with React in many projects. I’m also a 5-star rated instructor here on Udemy. I cover React’s most popular alternatives – Vue and Angular – as well as many other topics. I know what I’m talking about and I know where the pain points can be found.

It’s my goal to get you started with React as quick as possible and ensure your success. But I don’t just focus on students getting started. I want everyone to benefit from my courses, that’s why we’ll dive deeply into React and why I made sure to also share knowledge that’s helpful to advanced React developers.

Is this course for you?

This course is for you if …

  • …you’re just getting started with frontend/ JavaScript development and only got the JS basics set (no prior React or other framework experience is required!)
  • …you’re experienced with Angular or Vue but want to dive into React
  • …know the React basics but want to refresh them and/ or dive deeper
  • …already worked quite a bit with React but want to dive deeper and see it all come together in a bigger app

What should you bring to succeed in that course?

  • HTML + CSS + JavaScript knowledge is required. You don’t need to be an expert but the basics need to be set
  • NO advanced JavaScript knowledge is required, though you’ll be able to move even quicker through the course if you know next-gen JavaScript features like ES6 Arrow functions. A short refresher about the most important next-gen features is provided in the course though.

What’s inside the course?

  • The “What”, “Why” and “How”
  • React Basics (Base features, syntax and concepts)
  • How to output lists and conditional content
  • Styling of React components
  • A deep dive into the internals of React and advanced component features
  • How to access Http content from within React apps (AJAX)
  • Redux, Redux, Redux … from basics to advanced!
  • Forms and form validation in React apps
  • Authentication
  • An introduction to unit testing
  • An introduction to Next.js
  • React app deployment instructions
  • …and much more!

Who is the target audience?

  • Students who want to learn how to build reactive and fast web apps
  • Anyone who’s interested in learning an extremely popular technology used by leading tech companies like Netflix
  • Students who want to take their web development skills to the next level and learn a future-proof technology

Course Summary03:43

  • Be familiar with C# .NET and Microsoft Visual Studio at an intermediate or advanced level
  • Have a basic understanding of HTTP protocol (verbs, status codes) and the REST web service model
  • We’ll be covering intermediate to advanced topics facing professional developers in the real world, so this course is NOT for you if you are a beginner developer, or have no knowledge about HTTP and REST services and why we use them.

Are you a C#.NET developer ready to take the plunge into microservices?

Microsoft’s ASP.NET Web API 2.0 framework is an outstanding, flexible platform for creating microservices. Unfortunately the official documentation is sparse, and you are left trying to piece together your understanding of this powerful platform by scouring the Internet for articles and examples that are often too academic, outdated, and not aligned with the practical needs of real-world services that must integrate with potentially many different kinds of clients and data center environments.

In this course, I will take you step by step through all of the layers of Web API to give you a full understanding of the platform components you will likely need to use in a modern, production-ready web service. Examples and exercises are drawn from practical, real-world scenarios of the sort I personally faced while creating commercial web services– and chances are you will face them too!

We’ll cover all of the core Web API features like

  • securing your API parameters,
  • extending the Web API to perform custom processing,
  • error handling,
  • authentication and authorization.

We’ll look at ways to test and document your service. We’ll dig into performance improvements using techniques like caching and asynchronous operations. You’ll get a clear understanding of how to make your service work correctly behind application proxies such as load balancers that every commercial web service uses in the real world.

I’ve put together everything you need in one place to create professional, production-ready Web API services. This course will save you many hours of time and give you a much deeper understanding of everything Web API has to offer than trying to learn a piece at a time through Google– so get a jump-start now and become the Web API expert on your team!

The Experience

The course experience is intended to feel like a more intimate, one-on-one setting. I want you to feel like you and I are both sitting down in front of your computer, reviewing some code in Visual Studio and having a friendly discussion about how things work, the pros and cons of a technique, and practical issues you might face when you start writing your own services using the framework.

The goal is not just to learn about the details of Web API. The examples and assignments are designed to create a web service mindset and give you of ways of thinking about the construction, performance and deployment of your web services, especially in scenarios that have unique cross-platform integration requirements.

The Tech Stack

This course specifically uses the standard .NET Framework version of Web API, which usually runs under IIS on Windows servers. If you are using .NET Core instead of .NET Framework, then while the concepts in this course will translate well the specific syntax for .NET Core Web API is different, so you won’t be able to use the examples without serious modification.

For testing, we’ll be using Fiddler, PostMan and Swagger (via the Swashbuckle library).

Who is the target audience?

  • Professional developers (or those seeking to become one) who want a solid understanding of the Web API framework to create real world, professional web services
  • Web service and microservice developers who have complex integration problems to solve, such as cross-platform or hybrid on-premise/cloud
  • Programmers who know the basics of Web API but want to go deeper to gain a full understanding of the pipeline and how to manipulate it
  • Microservice developers wanting to deploy production-ready services that meet the requirements of a modern DevOps infrastructure

Featured review – ( 2795 courses, 153 reviews )
5 star  – 5 months ago

A must for working developers! I have learned so much after only watching a few sections in this course. It has already had a positive effect on my work. Looking forward to seeing how much more my work can approve by the end of the course. Will definitely continue coming back to this course.

Requirements

  • A little bit of ES5 and ES6.

Description

Do you want to practice your React coding or just to learn it by creating webpages ?. This is the course for you.

Because sometimes the best way to learn its by practicing and because most of the courses teach you the just the basics and give you a todo app, I wanted to create something different. We will create Three real life projects,  so we can practice our react coding in a more real environment.

If you don’t know much of React, no worries. We will start simple with a static landing page , then we will go to a much more compete project with authentication and DB and last but not least we will create am e-commerce style project with user cart, PayPal, not only that we will create our own server to handle all the requests.

If you know nothing about React, don’t worry, I added a bonus section with a tiny React course so you can understand the basics and how react works. So you can start from there and then go to the practice projects.

To sum everything up, this what we will be creating in this course:

Project one ”The venue”:

  • How to create a project with React CLI
  • Creation of components
  • Using third party libraries
  • Creating transitions on reveal and carrousel.
  • Using parts of Material UI to make our app better.
  • Deployment of a static webpages to SURGE.

Project two “M City”:

  • Creating of routes to navigate our project
  • More complex animations and transitions
  • Rendering components using data from a server
  • We will use authentication and create an Admin endpoint
  • Firebase uploads and storage
  • Add a database on a server to work with
  • Deployment of the project to Firebase

Project three “Waves”:

  • E-Commerce style application
  • Creation of dynamic routes
  • Using REDUX as store.
  • Authentication, user dashboard and admin dashboard
  • Create a server with Node JS and express
  • Add database to our Project with Mongo DB
  • Creating different routes to process the requests
  • Add cart items to user account
  • Complete checkout with Paypal
  • Deployment to Heroku

And as a bonus just like tiny React course, you will get additional React components to the projects.

Who is the target audience?

  • From beginners to intermediate.

And if you do get stuck, you benefit from an extremely fast and friendly support – both via direct messaging or discussion. You have my word! 😉

Angular is one of the most modern, performance-efficient and powerful frontend frameworks you can learn as of today. It allows you to build great web apps which offer awesome user experiences! Learn all the fundamentals you need to know to get started developing Angular applications right away.

Hear what my students have to say

Absolutely fantastic tutorial series. I cannot thank you enough. The quality is first class and your presentational skills are second to none. Keep up this excellent work. You really rock! – Paul Whitehouse

The instructor, Max, is very enthusiastic and engaging. He does a great job of explaining what he’s doing and why rather than having students just mimic his coding. Max was also very responsive to questions. I would recommend this course and any others that he offers. Thanks, Max!

As a person new to both JavaScript and Angular 2 I found this course extremely helpful because Max does a great job of explaining all the important concepts behind the code. Max has a great teaching ability to focus on what his audience needs to understand.

This Course uses TypeScript

TypeScript is the main language used by the official Angular team and the language you’ll mostly see in Angular tutorials. It’s a superset to JavaScript and makes writing Angular apps really easy. Using it ensures, that you will have the best possible preparation for creating Angular apps. Check out the free videos for more information.

TypeScript knowledge is, however, not required – basic JavaScript knowledge is enough.

Why Angular?

Angular is the next big deal. Being the successor of the overwhelmingly successful Angular.js framework it’s bound to shape the future of frontend development in a similar way. The powerful features and capabilities of Angular allow you to create complex, customizable, modern, responsive and user friendly web applications.

Angular 7 simply is the latest version of the Angular framework and simply an update to Angular 2.

Angular is faster than Angular 1 and offers a much more flexible and modular development approach. After taking this course you’ll be able to fully take advantage of all those features and start developing awesome applications immediately.

Due to the drastic differences between Angular 1 and Angular (=Angular 7) you don’t need to know anything about Angular.js to be able to benefit from this course and build your futures projects with Angular.

Get a very deep understanding of how to create Angular applications

This course will teach you all the fundamentals about modules, directives, components, databinding, routing, HTTP access and much more! We will take a lot of deep dives and each section is backed up with a real project. All examples showcase the features Angular offers and how to apply them correctly.

Specifically you will learn:

    • Which architecture Angular uses
    • How to use TypeScript to write Angular applications
    • All about directives and components, including the creation of custom directives/ components
    • How databinding works
    • All about routing and handling navigation
    • What Pipes are and how to use them
    • How to access the Web (e.g. RESTful servers)
    • What dependency injection is and how to use it
    • How to use Modules in Angular
    • How to optimize your (bigger) Angular Application
    • We will build a major project in this course
    • and much more!

Pay once, benefit a lifetime!

Don’t lose any time, gain an edge and start developing now!

Who is the target audience?

  • Newcomer as well as experienced frontend developers interested in learning a modern JavaScript framework
  • This course is for everyone interested in learning a state-of-the-art frontend JavaScript framework
  • Taking this course will enable you to be amongst the first to gain a very solid understanding of Angular

How does the course develop as we go along?

In the beginning of the course, we’ll cover the basic GraphQL / Apollo concepts that we need to get started, then dive into building our app. We’ll build out our backend, cover creating a GraphQL server and database (hosted with MLab), and how to write resolver functions with MongoDB. Then we’ll move over to the frontend, create our Vue app and connect it with our backend, develop an interface and build client-side functionality with Vue, Vuetify, and Vue Apollo / Vuex. We’ll learn how to write and execute queries and mutations using Apollo to our backend to get and modify what we need. Once we cover and integrate all the essential features of our application (listed above), we’ll move on to deploying our app to the web. After deployment, for those who want to stick around and make their app truly production-ready, we’ll cover a number of cool features to make our app more functional, attractive and reliable.

I wanted to make this course as comprehensive as I could, but also give you the fast track to learning new technologies in an engaging way. GraphQL is an exciting new technology in the web development community and new Apollo releases such as Apollo Server 2 and Apollo Boost have made working with GraphQL easier than ever.

There’s never been a better time to start working with GraphQL, especially as a JavaScript developer. Join me and let’s get started!

Who is the target audience?

  • Anyone who wants to learn how to build full-stack applications with Vue and GraphQL!

Building Recommender Systems with Machine Learning and AI

Description

Learn how to build recommender systems from one of Amazon’s pioneers in the field. Frank Kane spent over nine years at Amazon, where he managed and led the development of many of Amazon’s personalized product recommendation technologies.

You’ve seen automated recommendations everywhere – on Netflix’s home page, on YouTube, and on Amazon as these machine learning algorithms learn about your unique interests, and show the best products or content for you as an individual. These technologies have become central to the  largest, most prestigious tech employers out there, and by understanding how they work, you’ll become very valuable to them.

We’ll cover tried and true recommendation algorithms based on neighborhood-based collaborative filtering, and work our way up to more modern techniques including matrix factorization and even deep learning with artificial neural networks. Along the way, you’ll learn from Frank’s extensive industry experience to understand the real-world challenges you’ll encounter when applying these algorithms at large scale and with real-world data.

Recommender systems are complex; don’t enroll in this course expecting a learn-to-code type of format. There’s no recipe to follow on how to make a recommender system; you need to understand the different algorithms and how to choose when to apply each one for a given situation. We assume you already know how to code.

However, this course is very hands-on; you’ll develop your own framework for evaluating and combining many different recommendation algorithms together, and you’ll even build your own neural networks using Tensorflow to generate recommendations from real-world movie ratings from real people. We’ll cover:

  • Building a recommendation engine
  • Evaluating recommender systems
  • Content-based filtering using item attributes
  • Neighborhood-based collaborative filtering with user-based, item-based, and KNN CF
  • Model-based methods including matrix factorization and SVD
  • Applying deep learning, AI, and artificial neural networks to recommendations
  • Session-based recommendations with recursive neural networks
  • Scaling to massive data sets with Apache Spark machine learning, Amazon DSSTNE deep learning, and AWS SageMaker with factorization machines
  • Real-world challenges and solutions with recommender systems
  • Case studies from YouTube and Netflix
  • Building hybrid, ensemble recommenders

This comprehensive course takes you all the way from the early days of collaborative filtering, to bleeding-edge applications of deep neural networks and modern machine learning techniques for recommending the best items to every individual user.

The coding exercises in this course use the Python programming language. We include an intro to Python if you’re new to it, but you’ll need some prior programming experience in order to use this course successfully. We also include a short introduction to deep learning if you are new to the field of artificial intelligence, but you’ll need to be able to understand new computer algorithms.

High-quality, hand-edited English closed captions are included to help you follow along.

I hope to see you in the course soon!

Who is the target audience?

  • Software developers interested in applying machine learning and deep learning to product or content recommendations
  • Engineers working at, or interested in working at large e-commerce or web companies
  • Computer Scientists interested in the latest recommender system theory and research
