We live in a period when the gaming industry develops at a quick pace. Just imagine, according to Valve’s Steam platform, on March 15, 20 million users across the world were playing at the same time, as COVID-19 began to spread more in the US.

This is why we decided to place a greater focus on game development education and specifically on Unity.

Unity is a wonderful tool to learn if you're looking to start in the games industry. It's the engine that, by far, powers most of the high-end PC, Console, and best-selling mobile games. There's no better time to start thinking about gaming as a career. The pandemic has actually increased the demand for new games, game studios are hiring like never before, and new consoles from Sony and Microsoft are now launching, building even more demand for new content.

VP of Gaming & Entertainment at Innovecs

Thus, Innovecs announces the registration for a Unity training track based on InnoCamp, our internal educational platform. It is already the fourth training track provided by InnoCamp. The aim is to develop competencies of future IT-specialists in Ukraine. In 2019, we delivered tracks dedicated to QA Manual, QA Automation, and Front-end (React, JavaScript), resulting in over 20 graduates who started their careers at Innovecs.

We invite everyone wishing to develop as a Unity game developer. The training starts on July 7, 2020. The best students will have a chance to pass the interview and become a part of one of the Innovecs international game projects.

Despite the fact that there are many multi-functional game development engines on the market, Unity is a top solution that provides a number of highly competitive advantages.

Unity is a powerful cross-platform engine that allows our teams to work and iterate quickly. Easy to start and hard to master, Unity is fun to use across developers of various skillsets. Multi-platform development, the rapid evolution of the engine, development support, and huge community make Unity the engine of choice when we work on the next mobile game title.

Unity As a Weapon Against Evil: How Volunteering Helps Resist Russia’s Enemy Attack
Innovecs is a global company, we have two large offices in Ukraine located in Kyiv and Mykolayiv. On February 24, Ukrainians woke up to a new reality — a hostile Russian invasion shattered the plans and quiet lives of 45 million people. Instead of getting confused, the Ukrainians united in the name of victory. President Zelenskiy is now compared to King David of Israel, who skillfully dealt with the huge and ugly Goliath. A small country on a map is fighting a huge Russian army. National collective responsibility has been a powerful blow in response to Russia’s legend of a weak and divided Ukraine. Here everyone is either a soldier or a volunteer. Each of us has our own battlefront. Someone hospitably opens the door to migrants, makes dumplings for soldiers in the defense, someone donates to the army, and seeks options to buy bulletproof vests and medical kits for the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Someone performs DDoS attacks on Russian sites and is waging an active war on the information front. Some advise and provide psychological assistance, some treat and organize humanitarian convoys free of charge. Innovecs, like hundreds of others, has joined the financial support of the army. We also organized additional fundraising for each team member who wanted to donate money to support the army. Of course, Innovecsers help not only with funding, but also volunteer. Today we will share some stories of our team members who chose their “battlefront” during the war with Russia.
