"The AR/VR add on program was to me very educational, entertaining and insightful, with truly skilled teachers, new technology equipment and a great atmosphere!😊 It gave me job opportunities that I would most likely not have gotten without it."
"I attended the AR/VR course during the 2020-2021 period, and in that period I got a good introduction on how to set up projects and develop for AR and VR. And while some prior experience was a good thing to have, everything was well explained from the ground up, allowing people with widely different skill sets to get an introduction to the whole process."
