Willow is learning to code by making games in Unity. In this talk, she'll share her experiences making Shark Attack, including what she has learned about C# and .NET; graphics, animation, and sound design; and the process of making software, including lessons that apply across all kinds of development. The aim is to get Shark Attack on the web, and maybe even on the App Store, by the time she starts Year 9 in September. See how she's getting on, and how you could use Unity to get your kids interested in coding, too.

Continuing Adventures in Unity
Willow has been programming since she was seven years old. It started simple, with Scratch, but got more complicated as she learned more languages and platforms.
