Game developers, programmers, architects, designers, artists with little or no experience in Unreal. Some programming knowledge is desirable, but not required. The course will be taught in English.

Learn how to set-up your own project, navigate and work with the Unreal Engine and its editor. Make your own small prototype. Learn how to get started developing your own games, simulations or visualizations using UE4 and Blueprints.

This is a (really) intensive two hour, introductory workshop, taught by Unreal veterans. The goal here is to provide know-how and help you on possible questions for the upcoming Global Gam Jam 2018.
