COURSES

Room-Scale VR Nick Pettit

Room-scale VR is a type of virtual reality experience that’s designed to be played in a small area of a room. This could be used to walk through architectural models or train people how to perform physical tasks. In this course, we’ll create a simple basketball game that allows players to walk around the court, pick up the ball using motion controllers, and shoot baskets. Learning how to create VR applications at room-scale will expand the types VR experiences you’re able to make.

WORKSHOPS

What’s New in Auto Layout in iOS 9? – Pasan Premaratne (21 minutes)

In this workshop, we’ll cover some of the new features added to Auto Layout in iOS 9 that make it much easier to set up stacked layouts and create constraints in code.

Custom Views in iOS – Pasan Premaratne (39 minutes)

Learn how to work with Views in Swift 2.2.

Protocol Oriented Programming with Swift 2 Pasan Premaratne (72 minutes)

Protocols are quite powerful in Swift and can be used to build objects as an alternative to inheritance. Let’s take a look at how we leverage protocols to build a decently complex example.

Building with Maven Chris Ramacciotti (30 minutes)

Developing applications for distribution usually involves the use of a build tool. In the Java world, this is likely either Gradle or Maven. In this workshop, we’ll explore the basic use of Maven as a tool to compile, test, and package your application. We’ll cover the standard directory layout of a Maven project, the Project Object Model (POM), and dependency management with Maven.
