Unity Programming practice

Recommended Posts

I hear many new programmers as well as veterans often wanting to work on their programming skills and simply has nothing to code. What I mean by this is that they can't think of anything they can program at the moment.What I've decided to create a thread in where the community can assign and solves exercises. All exercises should be able to be done in any or at least most programming languages. Feel free to add an assignment here and leave all responses in this thread. I'll start it off.All my assignments will be posted in this thread and it will be vary in difficulty. Task #1: Difficulty - Beginner Ask the user for a 3 digit number and print out the 3rd digit. If the user enters anything more or less than a 3 digit number, request that a 3 digit number must be entered.

Seriously? No projects to code? I have about 4 large projects that I wish I had time/motivation for. And if I'm going to practice, it's going to be in a new language or with new idioms. For that I don't want a new project, I want something I've already done (and can thus focus my attention on the language/idiom, not the problem).

This isn't quite applicable, but Rosetta Code has a good list of basic stuff that I used when I was making sure I had my bases covered while doing language design.

I have found it useful to go through old programming books from college days and re-implement the algorithms in them.

Most of the assignments that took me a long time back then (or that were never assigned, or that were assigned and I never bothered to do) can be answered in just a few minutes.

It provides a review of concepts that I have forgotten.

It also brings up some fun exercises like the Josephus Problem, iterative methods like proving dollar-cost averaging, and tidbits of classic math solutions like Euclid's GCD function and Fibonacci coding.



It is also fun to compare my solution today, in a language of my choice, with the solutions presented in the rather old books.

This goes in the opposite way with me: I'm not a programmer, but I have projects to work on.


The way I see it, if you're programming a lot, you're a programmer, regardless of whether or not you do it for a living.

      itSeez3D, a leading developer of mobile 3d scanning software, announced today a new SDK for its automatic 3D avatar generation technology, Avatar SDK for Unity. The Avatar SDK for Unity is a robust plug-n-play toolset which enables developers and creatives to integrate realistic user-generated 3D avatars into their Unity-based applications. SDK users can allow players to create their own avatars in the application or integrate the SDK into their own production processes for character design and animation.
      “Virtual avatars have recently become increasingly popular, especially in sports games and social VR apps. With the advance of VR and AR, the demand to get humans into the digital world is only increasing”, said Victor Erukhimov, itSeez3D CEO. “Our new Avatar SDK for Unity makes it super-easy to bring the avatar technology into any Unity-based game or VR/AR experience. With the Avatar SDK for Unity now every developer can bring face scanning technology into their games and allow players to create their own personalized in-game avatars, making the gameplay much more exciting and immersive.”
      Key features of the Avatar SDK for Unity:
      Automatic generation of a color 3D face model from a single selfie photo in 5-10 seconds (!). Works best with selfies, but can be used with any portrait photo.
      Shape and texture of the head model are unique for each person, synthesized with a deep learning algorithm crafted by computer vision experts
      Head models support runtime blendshape facial animations (45 different expressions)
      Generated 3D heads include eyes, mouth, and teeth
      Algorithms synthesize 3D meshes in mid-poly resolution, ~12k vertices, and ~24k triangles
      Six predefined hairstyles with hair-recoloring feature (many more available on request)
      Avatar generation API can be used in design-time and in run-time, which means you can allow users to create their own avatars in your game
      Cloud version is cross-platform, and offline version currently works on PCs with 64-bit Windows (support for more platforms is coming soon)
      Well-documented samples showcasing the functionality.
       
      Availability
      The Avatar SDK for Unity is offered in two modes - “Cloud” and “Offline”. The “Cloud” version is available at http://avatarsdk.com/ and the “Offline” version is available by request at support@itseez3d.com.

      About itSeez3D
      At itSeez3D, we are working on the computer vision technology that turns mobile devices into powerful 3D scanners. itSeez3D has developed the world's first mobile 3D scanning application that allows to create high-resolution photorealistic 3D models of people's' faces, bodies and objects. The application is available for iOS and Windows OS mobile devices powered with 3D cameras. In 2016 the company introduced Avatar SDK that creates a realistic 3D model of a face from a single selfie photo.
