Introduction and Project Overview
Hi everyone. My name is Alexander Zanfir. I am a software and game developing author at Pluralsight. My latest work projects include courses on game development, network security, and Node. js. In this course we're going to learn how to create a multiplayer game using Unity and a dedicated server with Node. js. Some of the key takeaways from watching this course include learning how to create a server authoritative multiplayer game. As well as create a dedicated server from the ground up. We will also learn how to use Node. js and how to work with WebSockets. Finally we'll learn about synchronizing A. I. over the network in real time. By the end of this training, you will have a multiplayer game template you can use to make something simple, or something as complex as a massive multiplayer online game or MMO. I'm excited to share these tips and techniques with you. So sign in or up and let's get started.
