Joshua is a devoted games author at Pluralsight. For years Joshua was a key author behind Digital-Tutors' (now a Pluralsight company) popular game engine training. As a kid, he had a passion for playing video games, which eventually developed into a fascination with the process of game creation. The question of "How'd they do that?" led Joshua on a quest to learn to make these games himself.

Course Overview Gameplay programming is the process of bringing your game to life. Creating gameplay can be overwhelming, so it'll be important to know how to break down those gigantic tasks into smaller, more manageable tasks. C# is a powerful coding language, and with the help of the Unity game engine, you can create fun experiences for your players. Unity offers an object-oriented approach to coding gameplay, and you'll quickly realize that designing code will feel strangely familiar. In this course you'll learn how to begin breaking down large tasks, and how to begin to design your code to be more flexible. We'll also learn how to utilize composition and inheritance strategies to reduce code repetition. Then we'll wrap up the course by learning about scriptable objects and the extreme flexibility that they provide. Now as we continue this journey together, you'll be amazed at the power and flexibility Unity offers; and Pluralsight is excited to partner with Unity to help in your game development experience. You're going to love how easy it is to create gameplay in the Unity game engine.
