COURSES

Prototyping with Foundation for Apps – Guil Hernandez

Foundation for Apps is a robust front-end framework that provides HTML5 and JavaScript tools for creating dynamic web applications. In this course, you’ll get to know the Foundation for Apps framework while building a prototype for an app called Trekker, a simple app that makes it easy to find nearby hiking trails.

Drupal Basics – Diane Douglas

Drupal 7 is a robust framework which is ideal for websites of any size. In this course, dive into using Drupal to create a complete website for a fictional small business called Cameron’s Coffee Stand. Create basic pages, menus, blog posts, email forms and more, all without touching code. Customize the look of the website using themes, and learn to use Drupal’s included permissions and authentication system. Lastly, you’ll include your own code with a Drupal website by creating a custom module.

3D Art with Maya LT – Jason Baskin

If you are interested in creating 3D assets for games, and have never used 3D creation software before, this is a great place to start. This course explores the 3D art production pipeline as we model, texture, and export a game model into the Unity game engine. We’ll be working with Maya, the premiere 3D software package from Autodesk to develop a 3D game model using 2D concept images as a starting point. By the end of this course, you will have an arsenal of great modeling tools at your disposal that you can use to create assets based on your own designs.
