Hi imaumac. I am also a Unity user.

For documentation and tutorials about Unity, check out the Unity site:

They have a lot of good documentation:
http://unity3d.com/support/documentation/

And a very good tutorial:
http://unity3d.com/support/resources/tut...tform-game


Also, don't forget that Java is not the same as Javascript. They are actually quite different. Learning Java won't help you much with Unity or the iPhone.

My Unity work is targeting the web player. My iPhone games were written without any extra tools or libraries (except chipmunk, of course!)

JavaScript is almost the opposite of Java, except, of course in its C syntax heritage. JavaScript is a dynamic, weakly typed language. The similarity in names has more to do with Netscape's business and marketing decisions than any similarity between the languages. JavaScript is a functional language with prototypal inheritance. It's been called Scheme in C clothing.

I've learned many languages (including wacky ones like Forth and APL) and I would probably rate JavaScript as my favorite. There are many great learning resources for both Java and JavaScript.

Many people don't understand JavaScript's power until they encounter Douglas Crockford's writing: http://www.crockford.com/javascript/

My JavaScript blog has shown up in a few places as a top JavaScript blog: http://dreaminginjavascript.wordpress.com. My target audience? "Script kiddies" trying to understand the language better and experienced programmers who don't know what to make of JavaScript.

Unity's JavaScript should be called UnityScript, because it really isn't very close to ECMA JavaScript. But it's way the heck faster as a result.
