What is AR/VR App Development?
The Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) industries are still in its infancy, however, this is why now is the perfect time to learn how to create content for these technologies. They need it to make the jump to the next level of adoption.
Luckily, from a developer standpoint, the skills needed to get into AR and VR are very similar and the barriers to entry are still relatively low. This article will give you an overview of how to get started.
No matter whether you’re a newbie who is starting with programming or a veteran with years of experience in the field, the main skills you’ll need to become an AR/VR developer are in the 3D area. In fact, it’s not very different from 3D games development.
Why? Because AR and VR are about creating immersive worlds or environments that can be interacted with in three dimensions, like in real life.
So depending on how deep you want to go, you may have to learn about 3D modeling and/or scanning, 3D games engines, 360° photos and videos, maybe a little bit of math and geometry, programming languages like C/C++/C# and software development kits (SDKs), and how to design experiences for users in 3D.
