Open pilot of the Advanced Augmented Reality Course announced

We are glad to announce the open pilot of the Code Reality Advanced Augmented Reality Course to be held in St Petersburg, Russia on 19-26 April 2020. We offer an intensive five days of training from Sunday evening April 19 to Friday afternoon April 24, concluding the week with a hackathon on April 25-26.

The event will be hosted by one of the Code Reality partner universities ITMO.


The program of the course includes design thinking and user experience guidelines, as well as advanced story-telling teach creative tools and methods for outlining and substantialising the AR application idea. Computational thinking and performance profiling lectures equip students with the required theory and practice for building AR applications.

The implementation-focused technologies advance from the foundational course to cover now spatial understanding (on top of spatial mapping), abstraction for cross-platform/multi-user/multi-device support, artificial intelligence dialog understanding, open CV foundations, wearable technology and making things talk, and volumetric video capture.

Finally, evaluating AR introduces the methodologies available for verifying and validating applications.
