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.
