Overview

The XR industry is expected to contribute $1.5 trillion to global GDP by 2030, according to PwC 

XR, the umbrella term for AR (Augmented Reality), VR (Virtual Reality) and MR (Mixed Reality), is expected to contribute $1.5 trillion to global GDP by 2030, according to PwC. And it’s not surprising why. As a technology that merges physical and digital worlds to create unique experiences, XR, also referred to as spatial computing, is changing the way developers create new products and experiences.

Countless examples across all industries make the case for developers to extend their capabilities in XR. To name a few: Amazon, Wayfair and IKEA all have AR viewers for customers to view products in their homes; large automotive companies such as Audi and Toyota are using AR and VR to host virtual showrooms; VR is used for large-scale training for more than 1 million associates across Walmart.

As AR and VR find wide adoption and demand across industries, software developers and engineers need conceptual and practical hands-on experience for developing for developing AR and VR interactions and experiences.

The AR and VR Developer Program is a 12-week, intensive, part-time program. The course provides training and project experience necessary to develop dynamic virtual reality and augmented reality applications. 

With live instruction, industry-based projects, and a focus on getting you portfolio-ready, the program will give you all the tools you need as productive members of an XR-focused software development team.
