The programming language we have to use is Unity. The only problem is I don't know where to write the code in the Unity program.
Can anyone help and tell me where I need to write my code in order to test program my gaming ideas.
This is the screen I get when I open up the Unity program.
(There is also an 'older' language called UnityScript, but this is being phased out in favour of C# so I'd recommend avoiding that and sticking with C#)
You can use the Unity editor to create a new C# file containing some basic/empty code structures, although as far as editing this, Unity should have been installed with an Integrated Development Environment (IDE - a tool for editing code) called Microsoft Visual Studio Community Edition - you would normally use this to edit your C# code. If it's not installed, then it's a free download from Microsoft's website. Alternatively, If you're using an older version of Unity it might have installed with a different tool called MonoDevelop, but MonoDevelop is also being phased out by the Unity team in favour of Visual Studio.
However, if you're completely new to programming or new to C# then I'd suggest concentrating on the basics of programming first otherwise the structure and syntax of C# will probably overwhelm you a bit.

The official Unity website has some videos too: https://unity3d.com/learn/tutorials/...olute-beginner
