Recently I created an Azure Blob storage demo project in Unity to show how to save and load these various asset types in Unity. One of the exciting new applications for Unity is developing VR, AR or MR experiences...


When it comes to working as a team on the same project we are all thankful for source control. But even if you’re cool with git there are some things to be aware of when starting new source controlled Unity projects that should help to reduce the chance of nasty merge conflicts.
