After taking this course you will be able to:
The idea behind this course is to help you become a creator. You will be able to develop your own WebGL demos. I believe that everybody is capable of creating web 3D. I believe that if you’re motivated enough you can learn how to use the elements I will teach during this course to develop your own 3D creation.
Why this course?
We describe what we gonna do and which tools we gonna use to get there.
Yeoman is presented in more details. We give an overview of this excelent tool and describe how we gonna use it.
We generate the initial three.js boilerplate. This get us started fast with usual good practices.
We present threex.nyancat, a three.js extension to display nyancat in webgl. In the process, we present threex extensions and how you can reuse them.
Now we are ready to actually display the nyancat! Let's do that and start spreading nyancat everywhere :)
Let's summarize what we learned!
Once your are confortable with all this, you can have fun. Here is a shameful i made. a farting nyancat. You should not laugh :)
My name is Jerome Etienne.
I'm a off-beat developer and a creator. I am also CTO of a video game company which is actually engaged in developing a 3D social network online.
I keep a blog called "learning three.js" to teach other developers about my passion for creating 3D demos and mini-games. Feel free and welcome to visit my blog at http://learningthreejs.com/. You can take a look and comment my posts and demos.
I have teached in 3D Games and Multimedia Schools in Paris. As an independent game developer I have created many 3D mini-games on the web (MarbleSoccer, PacMaze, Pong, Stellar 7, Flying Spaceship.) I am real proud of my three x extensions http://jeromeetienne.github.io/threex/
I have participated and presented my creations in many conferences worldwide (DevFest, On Game Start, Mozilla Fest London, WebGl camp at Google London, HTML5 Game Jam.) You can see some videos of my talks on youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LDjPuiV5tUUhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rXl7gOK0VfE
