About the Unity Expert Gameplay Programmer Certification Preparation Specialization

Welcome to Unity’s Expert Gameplay Programming Specialization! This Specialization is test-prep for the Unity Certified Expert: Gameplay Programmer exam. This Specialization includes 5 courses designed to challenge you with a series of realistic programming problems in Unity video-game projects, the kind true gameplay programming experts face every day. Each challenge is inspired by one or more of the topics covered in the Expert Gameplay Programmer exam, and by the end of this Specialization you will have had extensive, guided practice in the programming skills needed to pass this exam. This Specialization is intended for industry game developers or very experienced Unity enthusiasts who are looking to “level-up” their gameplay programming and implementation strategies. You should have at least 2-3 years of experience developing games with Unity, be familiar with the full-game lifecycle (working from early concept to launch), creating and working with Prefabs, understanding game asset and animation pipelines, and have some experience with Unity Services. You should also have advanced programming skills, particularly in the C# language....
