Learn Unity and iOS 9 with Udemy

This isn’t any sort of sponsored plug for Udemy… they’ve just leapt out at me as being amazing! You see, I have a game idea I have been working on for a while, and I was having to reacquaint myself with Java via YouTube tutorials posted by spotty teenagers.

After my weekend at #KIWIJAM15 I realised that Unity is what all the cool kids are using now, so I went looking for an online course. I found a voucher online that got me into this course: Learn To Code by Making Games – The Complete Unity Developer for $10, instead of $197, and I’m loving it. While writing this post I just saw this course as well: The Complete iOS 9 Developer Course – Build 18 Apps for $24 instead of $199… so I had to sign up that one as well! Grrrr, there are NOT enough hours in the day (mental note, talk to Auckland Council about having this changed).

The reason I want to learn iOS properly is that a few years ago I made a deal with the family of YouTube’s infamous wafflepwn (the kid who films his brother having fits of rage) to write the “official” app – a very basic soundboard with audio clips of his brother Stephen’s screams and curses. His channel, “The greatest freakout ever,” is still up.

My wafflepwn app is embarrassing, and probably doesnt even work with modern devices, and I really want to update it to make it cool – and make a few dollars! So I need to brush up my iOS skills.

Anyway, if you’re looking for online training courses, check Udemy out.
