Hackathon: Team-Based App and Game Development

Get a taste of real-world software development as you create a polished game or app with a team of peers! First, you’ll discover the basics of development with Unity—an industry standard development tool—and C#. Hone your UX/UI design expertise while working on creating interfaces and gameplay. Whether your team focuses on creating characters, making modular environment set pieces, developing an immersive game-experience, or improving user flow and experience, you’ll get your artistic or entrepreneurial app ready for players and users to enjoy.

Once you’ve mastered the basics, you’ll work in a collaborative team environment to realize a shared vision. You’ll also check in and check out code in online repositories, learn about branches, and actively version code in a live project. Combining art, code, and other assets into a cohesive whole, your experience will culminate in an app or game that’s ready for the big-time. Work together and keep iterating to add more polished content to your portfolio!
