XR Bootcamp Launching Advanced XR Development Master Class – Quest 2 Included
XR Bootcamp is pleased to announce the October 12th launch of the online Hand Tracking and Interaction Design Master Class. In this 8-week online Master Class, participants become proficient in hand tracking, and advanced interaction design. Participants will also receive a free Quest 2, the newly announced Oculus virtual reality device, to assist in their development projects.
“XR developer jobs are growing fast, and the high-quality professional development training in the Master Class helps meet that explosive demand. We work closely with industry professionals and designed the Master Class to be very hands-on and meet real business needs. Creating realistic physics-based interactions is incredibly challenging, and we’re dedicated to closing the skills gap as a Unity Authorized Training Partner.” Rahel Demant, Co-Founder of XR Bootcamp
Participants in the XR Bootcamp Master Class have access to over 70 hours of advanced online and live training, weekly mentor sessions, weekly hands-on assignments, guest lectures from industry experts, and are treated to in-VR graduation ceremonies. The Master Class is taught by industry professionals Roger Kueng and Dennys Kuhnert, co-founders of Holonautic.
“Attending the Principles workshop is a great first step for devs, designers, and anyone interested in XR development or human-computer interactions (HCI) Professionals from Apple, Adobe, Autodesk, Boeing, The Walt Disney Company, Microsoft, Facebook, IBM, Samsung, Autodesk, Unity, Toyota, Ubisoft, and Magic Leap attended previous workshops and their overall response was very positive. The extensive 8-week Master Class for XR developers is the next step. Participants finish the Master Class with practical, applicable development skills.” Dennys Kuhnert, Creator of the Hand Physics Lab and Co-founder of Holonautic.
The Master Class also provides experienced mentors and a private Slack group for real-time troubleshooting. Beginner level developers will feel at home as assignments offer difficulty modifiers to help them succeed on their own terms. The Master Class is in partnership with SideQuest and based on the Unity real-time development platform which makes it possible to build an impressive interaction framework for hand tracking including custom user interfaces, locomotion systems, kinematic and physics-based interactions, and complete a capstone project by developing a remotely controlled robotic arm application.
