Description

In this course, Creating VR Experiences with JavaScript, you'll learn how to develop complex VR experiences using the familiar technologies of JavaScript and HTML avoiding the need for learning new frameworks and libraries. First, you'll learn the advantages and disadvantages of web based VR development and scenarios that are particularly suited to this approach. Next, you'll explore the building blocks used to create these experiences covering WebVR, WebGL, Three.JS, and Device Orientation events. Finally, you'll work with frameworks such as A-Frame and ReactVR designed to rapidly develop experiences before putting together some more complex examples. By the end of the course, you'll have a good foundation for developing VR applications using web technologies that will display on devices from phones and tablets to full head sets.
