Unity has over 1.3 registered developers including such names as NASA, Cartoon Network, Coca-Cola, Disney, and LEGO. While not all of those companies might be creating games it shows how well acknowledge Unity is. Since Unity's community is massive, it's easier to find support as well as many useful assets. In Unity's asset store you can find many helpful tools for programming, sound & art design, and many more! This makes your development process faster and more fluent. Unity also has a very active team that keeps improving the game engine by adding new features and improving older ones.

Why Learn C#?

Unity allows you to program using three different languages: C#, JavaScript, and Boo. However, for game development, C sharp is the most popular option. C# was created by Microsoft in 2000. It is highly versatile. C# can be used to program not only games but also mobile apps, cloud-based services, and different types of software. So even if you're not planning on becoming a game developer, knowing C sharp will prove to be remarkably useful.

C# isn't that difficult to learn. It's a high-level programming language which means it's similar to English. There are many different ways you could learn C# yet it's most rewarding when you can instantly see the results of your work. That's why this fun Unity tutorial was created.
