Shader Week 1, Conclusion

The source code for all 7 days can be found here: https://github.com/Tommislav/unity_shaderweek

It has been a successful and interesting experiment, commiting 7 days to shader programming. As I’m on parental leave I could only spend about an hour a day for this, but I think I managed to get quite far!
Apart from what’s visible here, I spent 3-4 days reading or researching, but did not count those as I wanted visible examples for each day.

One problem with only having about an hour a day, and only doing tutorials is that you don’t get much time to modify/experiment/fix bugs. But I early decided that my focus this week would be learning, and that I will do a second shader week where I experiment and create my own shader effects instead.

To conclude

  • I have learned a ton!
  • Need a second shader week, where I write my own shader effects
  • A superb resource for learning shaders is this link: http://www.alanzucconi.com/
