Books and Video Courses on Learning to Code through Video Game Creation

Hi there,

In the past years, I have been liaising with teachers  who wanted to introduce programming to their students through the creation of games; several teachers have been using some of my resources (books and video courses) and found that it had helped their students to get started with programming while enjoying the journey and using a free game engine called Unity.
Last November, I gave access to these resources to several teachers for free, so that they could use it for their classes, if they found these to be a good fit.
So, I am renewing this offer for those who did not see it then, and also for those who have developped an interest in teh use of games for learning recently.
The books include:
  • Unity From Zero to Proficiency Series: a series of 4 books through which students learn to create and export 3D worlds and 3D games, and learn to code in C# in the process.
  • Beginner’s Guides: a series of 4 books through which students learn to create and export 2D games, and learn to code in C# in the process. They will be creating platformers, card games, puzzles, word games, shooter games, and infinite runners.
  • Quick Guides: a series of 6 books where students avail of a quick and easy tutorial (60 minutes) to get started on a specific topic (C#, Artificial Intelligence,etc.)
  • JavaScript from Zero to Proficiency (Beginner): A book that introduces Javascript programming to students with no prior knowledge of programming.
  • C# from Zero to Proficiency (Beginner): A book that introduces C#  programming to students with no prior knowledge of programming;
The video courses include:
All the books and video courses include a practical approach with many hands-on activities (students will spend most of their time coding and building their game), checklists (so that the students can check their progress), quizzes (to check their knowledge), challenges (to put their skills into practice), FAQs, and lots of explanations (e.g., many screenshots for the books).
So I am giving away these books and video courses for free to 100 teachers throughout Europe on a first-come-first-served basis.
If you are interested in receiving these, please email me: learntocreategames@gmail.com or pfelicia@gmail.com
Also, I am aware that Unity may be quite demanding in terms of computer requirements for some schools, and I am planning on a series of books that introduce coding through the creation of games with JavaScript or Java so that itcan be used on less up-to-date computers; if this is a topic that you are interested in, please email me to let me know the topics that you’d like to see covered in this book; I will also send you a free copy of same when it is released.

Hope this helps,- Patrick
