Selected! Choose more or scroll down to register.
A beginner-friendly workshop aimed towards getting a basic understanding of Unreal Engine. Participants will first get a quick overview of the editor, controls and creating a basic level. Then we will dive a bit deeper into Unreal Engine’s powerful visual scripting system, also known as Blueprints. Blueprints can be leveraged to create fully fledged games, without writing a single line of code.
This workshop is open for anyone regardless of experience. A little programming knowledge will make learning Blueprints a bit easier, but it’s not at all required. Please bring a laptop with Unreal Engine 4 (4.20 or later) installed. Participants without a laptop are also welcome, but keep in mind that some time will be assigned to individual work.
