Augmented Reality: A Digital Goldmine for Future CodersDecember 11th, 2023

Augmented reality (AR) has emerged as one of the most versatile markets in recent years – to the point that you might not even think twice when you come across it.

AR is any digital interactive experience that combines computer-generated content with the user's real-world experience. Unlike virtual reality, AR serves as a utility, enhancing tasks and activities rather than creating entirely simulated environments.

Current Applications of Augmented Reality

AR finds widespread application in pretty much all recent digital tech, including: "Virtual try-on" experiences for fashion enthusiasts Immersive gaming adventures, such as the wildly popular Pokémon GO Heads-up display integration in modern car windshields Integration of travel/location information and real-time map apps

Augmented Reality and Job Opportunities

AR relies on an amalgamation of physical technology for display and intricate software systems for seamless interaction. A comprehensive grasp of software engineering is vital for coders aiming to create AR applications.

But, for those willing to learn a thing or two about software engineering, AR is poised to revolutionize numerous industries as displays get cheaper, thinner, and easier to make. Some (but definitely not all) industries primed for AR integration are:

  • Architecture and city planning
  • Education and training
  • Construction and manufacturing
  • Customer service and interaction
  • Advertising and marketing
  • Emergency and health services
  • Gaming and entertainment
  • Travel and location tracking

The practicality of AR functions in virtually every sector cannot be overstated. If an activity or task exists, there's a good chance a savvy coder can make it better with a well-made AR app.

Full-Stack Development and Augmented Reality

Successful AR development necessitates a strong understanding of full-stack development, encompassing both front-end and back-end coding.

Full-stack engineering refers to the combined knowledge of front-end and back-end coding. Front-end coding is what the user interacts with (the actual arrows on an AR map guiding a tourist through Paris, for instance), while back-end coding is what goes on behind the scenes that allows all those cool AR features to happen as the user interacts with those front-end elements.

TrueCoders specifically teaches you how to make full use of full-stack engineering so that you can make your very own AR apps and programs by yourself or, at the very least, understand the complete process while working with a team.
