If you had 30 days to become a game developer or lose everything, what would you do? I met a guy at the SF VNV Nation concert who was sad. He wanted a VNV Nation hoodie but he couldn't pay his rent if he bought it. I decided to call him Raymond.
I asked, "What do you do that you can't pay your rent?"
"I work at the Academy of Art," he said, sighing.
"Isn't that a place that teaches game development?"
"I wish I was a game developer! I serve food in the cafeteria."
I bought the hoodie from the nice man at the merch table.
I found Raymond, thrust the hoodie into his hands and grabbed him by the shoulders:
"RAYMOND! WHAT DID YOU WANT TO BE, A GAME DEVELOPER? IF YOU'RE NOT ON YOUR WAY TO PLAYING CODE HERO, LEARNING UNITY GAME DEVELOPMENT AND MENTORING KIDS AT GAMEBRIDGE UNITYVERSITY IN 30 DAYS, YOU WILL BE SAD - AND YOU'LL HAVE TO RETURN THIS VNV NATION HOODIE!"
We're going to see what he is capable of and I'll post updates for the next 30 days about our bet. I am going to mentor him but I am also winning if he gives up because I really want the VNV hoodie!
Do you think Raymond will show up for Unityversity and earn his future and his hoodie?
Do you have any words of advice for Raymond?
I encourage you to take the Raymond Code Dare too:
Push yourself to learn Unity for the next 30 days starting when you read this. Comment when you start the challenge and comment when you need encouragement or are on your way to shipping something after 30 days!
DO YOU ACCEPT?
