In this course, you’ll learn how to make the most out of Unreal Engine by utilizing Blueprints and C++ in ways that complement their individual strengths. By the end, you’ll be able to assess which option best fits your needs in your own projects.

Overview

A lot of new developers want to approach development in Unreal Engine with either 100% Blueprint coding or 100% C++.  In this course, you’ll learn how to make the most out of Unreal Engine by utilizing Blueprints and C++ in ways that best complement their individual strengths. 

By referencing the official documentation, taking apart some of the example Template projects, and making real-world implementations, you’ll gain a better understanding of why combining both Blueprints and C++ can improve your productivity—along with other people’s if working in a team.
