Unity Certified Programmer: Exam Guide

By: Philip Walker

Overview of this book

Unity Certified Programmer is a global certification program by Unity for anyone looking to become a professional Unity developer. The official Unity programmer exam will not only validate your Unity knowledge and skills, but also enable you to be part of the Unity community. This study guide will start by building on your understanding of C# programming and take you through the process of downloading and installing Unity. You’ll understand how Unity works and get to grips with the core objectives of the Unity exam. As you advance, you’ll enhance your skills by creating an enjoyable side-scrolling shooter game that can be played within the Unity Editor or any recent Android mobile device. This Unity book will test your knowledge with self-assessment questions and help you take your skills to an advanced level by working with Unity tools such as the Animator, Particle Effects, Lighting, UI/UX, Scriptable Objects, and debugging. By the end of this book, you’ll have developed a solid understanding of the different tools in Unity and understand how to create impressive Unity applications by making the most of its toolset.

This section will include added notes and other topics that don't quite fit in our Unity project for a number of reasons; topics such as Virtual Reality (VR) for a side-scrolling game that could work, but ideally would be better suited to a first-person view format to help with the potential issues that a developer may encounter.

Other topics, such as Unity's networking setup, are somewhat ill-timed as regards the Unity programmer exam as this topic is marked as deprecated and Unity is currently working on a new networking setup as of the time of writing this book. I, therefore, thought that this would be of greater benefit as general knowledge.

Finally, in the last topic, we will cover some random general knowledge pertaining to Unity that could also help you through the exam.
