Get on the forefront of innovation. Become an in-demand software engineer by taking this tutorial on React VR. React VR is one of the most innovative and hot frameworks on the scene for virtual reality development.

The framework just launched in 2017, giving you the ability to create virtual reality apps with the web development skills you already have. So get ahead of the game as one of the first adopters of this exciting new technology!

This project-based course will get you coding from the get-go. By building three example projects, you will gain the skills to create full React VR projects.

First, learn the essentials of React VR by going through the main concepts. Then, build your first application that creates a tour of the world. Second, create an addicting three-dimensional game with a local storage feature. Finally, learn how to use an API to grab information from the web to use in your Virtual Reality application.

Don’t worry if you’re new to web development or React either. Some JavaScript experience will definitely help, but this course explains every concept thoroughly.

Don’t miss out on this chance to be a pioneer in combining web development and virtual reality! More and more, browsers will start supporting VR technology, so learning React VR is the perfect way to prepare yourself.

So what are you waiting for? Take the dive into ReactVR. Let’s get started coding!

Who is the target audience?
  • The perfect student knows some JS and React, and hopes to React VR to make innovative new projects.
  • All levels of coding accepted. However, fair warning, this won’t introducing coding from the ground up. For complete beginners, this might feel fast-paced.
  • Experienced developers and engineers will find this course perfect for brushing up on React and learning a new technology.

Coding Instructor & Software Engineer

Hi! I’m David. I spend most of my time building applications and coding tutorials. Currently, I study computer science at the University of San Francisco. I have also had software engineering internships at Zendesk and at a tech education startup called MVCodeClub.

I love sharing the knowledge that I have gained from my experience with other people. I have spent a fair bit of time working as a coding instructor. Because of this, I’ve learned how to explain advanced programming concepts in a clear and understandable way. There's no better feeling than when a students gets that "aha" moment.

Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me! Whether you want to chat, or work on something meaningful, please let me know!
