8 Weeks, 4 Prototypes, 1 MVP
13th of September to 8th of November 2021
Curriculum & Course Structure
In this prototyping bootcamp you will build a truly outstanding VR/AR project portfolio. Each week, you will work on and finish a real industry portfolio project. You can choose from a curated pool of industry use cases fitting to your personal profile and career goals.
Each week, you will work on a new personal industry portfolio project. You can choose from a curated pool of industry use cases received directly from our XR industry network.
The goal is to produce rapid prototypes that cement development skills and design concepts. This process will ensure your portfolio is relevant to the XR industry jobs that you will apply to. You may select your own project or get a recommendation from our mentors, depending on your personal career goals. Self-study, periodical check-ins, and mentorships are the major part of the prototyping course. Recommended total time spent: 20 hours per week.
Twice a week, you have a 1:1 call with your mentor and a 2-hour group mentorship session. In addition, you get access to additional portfolio project-focused learning content (i.e. focus on deployment to different hardware platforms and rapid prototyping workflows). Supplemental videos are available in our library for you to close your knowledge base gaps.
With 4 prototypes created, you will now choose which one to develop further. Pitch your favorite project to your fellow students and build a team or join another student’s MVP development sprint.
In the group, you will learn to define the scope and requirements (functional and dev work), production pipelines, and practice working in a professional dev team setup.
We recommend you spend an average of 20 hours per week working on the MVP. You can always ask questions and connect with others on slack and during co-working sessions. You will also get continuous access to the XR Foundations Course recordings to refer back to and check on course material you may need for certain aspects of the MVP.
In week 7, you will be matched with your career mentor and XR recruiter. Together, you will work on your professional profile, portfolio, and applications (2×30 min 1:1 calls). This includes:
- Designing and optimizing your resume
- Boosting your online presence with LinkedIn, Github, and Medium
- Building a portfolio to showcase your projects in the best possible way
- Learn to navigate the XR job market
- Meet with XR recruiters and get matched with opportunities
- Meet with successful XR freelancers, entrepreneurs, and developers
- Continuous career support until you get invited to your first XR job interviews!
From building a portfolio to inspiring talks, to 1:1 mentorship sessions, you will be XR employment-ready!
At the end of week 8, you will be invited to our graduation ceremony in Virtual Reality! You will also pitch your MVP to our board of industry advisors and XR recruiters. This is a unique opportunity for you to get your first XR job interview.
