Unity provides three months free access to Unity Learn Premium courses.

As part of its support for users quarantined in connection with the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic, Unity Technologies provides three months of free access to advanced training courses from Unity Learn Premium.

Although the Network has more than enough training courses on the most popular indie game engine Unity, a year ago Unity Technologies introduced the Unity Learn Premium program, which provides access to more in-depth and advanced courses. In addition to advanced lessons and tutorials for users of different levels of training, Unity Learn Premium includes biweekly live interactive Learn Live sessions with certified instructors. In addition to content created by Unity Technologies itself, the program includes lessons from partners from such popular resources as Coursera, Udemy and Pluralsight.

For business subscribers of Unity according to plans Plus and Pro, as well as for educational institutions, access to Unity Learn Premium has always been free, but for individual subscribers who use the free version of Unity, access to Learn Premium costs $ 15 per month.

Facebook has introduced a new interface, including a dark mode, for all users

Social network Facebook has started a wide distribution of a new version of the site design for desktop systems. Now users can switch to a new version of the interface or continue working in their usual environment.

So, if someone doesn't have access to a new version of the design right now, this feature should be available soon.

Like the redesign of the mobile app last year, the new desktop look of the site provides faster access to some of the main Facebook features and uses a more concise and simple design with lots of free space. The redesign also includes larger fonts and more elegant icons. In addition, users can now access dark mode and a simplified look with fewer columns of information to view.

The Facebook stories have been moved over the Status Update field. A little above the "Histories" section is an updated menu bar containing several tabs that were previously located in the left corner of the screen, such as "Events" and "Marketplace".
