Oculus, Unity partner on free VR development course
20+ hour course will teach VR build and launch best practices
Unity and Oculus have announced a partnership to release a free VR game development, design, and best practices course.
Entitled, "Design, develop and deploy for VR," the program contains a total of 11 modules focused on game development and covers topics such as prototyping, hand presence and interaction, sound, UI, optimization, testing, and marketing. Altogether, it is estimated to take over 20 hours to complete.
At the conclusion of the course, developers will be able to submit a vertical slice of the project they make during the program to Oculus in order to receive feedback focused on common mistakes typically made when submitting games to the Oculus Store.
The course is available now to developers with Unity, Oculus hardware, and the Oculus SDK and VRTK. As it's aimed at the intermediate level, developers new to either Unity or Oculus are recommended to take introductory classes before starting this course.
