SILICON SLOPES – Pluralsight, the enterprise technology learning platform, today announced a partnership with Unity Technologies, the creator of the world’s most popular creation engine that reaches nearly 3 billion devices worldwide, to launch a new Unity assessment and learning path for game developers. Through the partnership, game developers can measure their skill level with Pluralsight IQ and receive a customized learning path that provides them with the most direct route to increased proficiency in Unity.
“As technology advances, the world of game development has become extremely exciting and challenging,” said Chad Utley, Head of Content at Pluralsight. “We’re thrilled to partner with Unity to help game developers master the skills they need to create greater and more amazing games.”
