New content! Videos! Books!

We’ve been working with some awesome folks to build a great library of training material for game development with Unity.

These videos, soon to be joined by a series on game promotion, are designed to accompany and support our upcoming book, Mobile Game Development with Unity (also on Amazon and Safari).

Here’s what we’ve been working on:

We’ve also got some new “Learning Path” videos, exclusively out on O’Reilly’s Safari platform:

Our newest books are also available now:

One of the best ways to look at all the training we write is on O’Reilly’s Safari platform (which has a free trial). It’s like Netflix for technical training and books.

Virgin Australia IFE UX

I do the majority of my flying on Virgin Australia. I tried out the latest iteration of their tablet-based IFE this week – Samsung tablets connected to onboard wireless that serves content.

I was impressed to find that the only way to change the brightness on this otherwise OK IFE experience (well, it’s Android, and it crashes a lot, but it mostly does the job) was to shine my iPhone’s flash at the ambient light sensor on the top of the Samsung tablet. Otherwise, the tablet defaulted to a very dim screen, and since they’d locked out all forms of brightness control, this seemed to be the only way.

A+ user experience, Virgin Australia/Lufthansa (whom I believe this product is licensed from).
