Prerequisites

Swift or C#

You should also be familiar with using a modern IDE like XCode, Unity, or Visual Studio.

This course is designed for Unity developers who are already familiar with spatial development in a game engine or SwiftUI developers who want to learn how to apply their existing skills in visionOS.

Price

2990 USD.
0.1 Compare key Swift concepts with C#.
0.2 Learn to use XCode, RealityKit, and Reality Composer Pro.
Goal: Build a moderately complex app for visionOS.
1.1 We’re taking an iPad app and porting it to visionOS.
1.2 Then we’ll add 3D enhancements to take advantage of spatial computing.
Goal: Enhance a 2D app into a 3D app.
2.1 Become a master of RealityKit and how to bring 3D models into your app.
Goal: Build a visionOS shopping app with 3D models of products.
3.1 Learn how to animate your models programmatically and in Reality Composer Pro.
3.2 Also learn about grounding shadows, background effects and other forms of visual excitement.
Goal: Expand on the shopping app by adding visual flair and animations.
4.1 Move (digital) objects around the room with your hands. Make them interact with the world, with gravity, and with each other.
Goal: Build a planogram app for designing store shelves.
5.1 Sharing is caring. It’s also the killer feature of the Vision Pro. Learn how to take advantage of app sharing and learn to work with Personas.
Goal: Toss a ball back and forth with a friend hundreds of miles away.
6.1 Watch 2D videos. Watch 3D videos. Create an immersive theater to watch your movies in. Call a friend and watch together.
Goal: Design your own movie theater to watch 3D movies in.
7.1 World understanding and TabletopKit provide inside-out and outside-in ways to interact with the real world in mixed reality.
7.2 We’ll learn how to use these spatial mapping features.
Goal: Build an app to rearrange furniture in your living room.
8.1 The future of spatial computing involves machine learning. We all know this. In the final module, we’re going to dive into how we can integrate AR with AI.
Goal: This will be a surprise. I promise it will be great.
