C#

Intermediate C# or How to Make a Video Game or other?

I've recently completed C# Basics and C# Objects, and I was wondering what course I should take next.

Intermediate C# seems to be the next logical step, as it will continue to increase my knowledge of C#. But a lot of programs I want to write require a visual representation, so people have advised me to learn how to make video games and use Unity.

There are also other beginner classes like C# Collections that may be useful to me. Because of all the possibilities, I am kind of lost and would like help from a more experienced user than me.

Game development and C# are really different skills.

Sure, you'll learn some C# in the game development courses, but not a lot β€” C# isn't even a prerequisite for those.

But if you want to continue learning C#, I would suggest the Learn C# track. After that, if you want to go even further, you might try the ASP.NET Web Development track.

But if you're interested in Unity, you might also go for Beginner Game Development. And as I said, there's no prerequisite so you can take that series before, during, or after the C# courses. Just pace yourself!
