Circuit Stream is launching an intensive online bootcamp for individuals who want to expand their knowledge and skills in the VR, AR, and 3D development fields. The Unity Developer Bootcamp will run from October 11, 2022, to April 8, 2023.
Why the Unity Developer Bootcamp Is Being Launched
There is, currently, a growing global need for real-time 3D (RT3D) skills. The demand for such skills has outpaced the overall job market growth by more than 10%. Furthermore, the demand for RT3D skills has grown 50% faster than that for average IT skills.
In countries like Australia and New Zealand, the demand for RT3D skills has grown by more than 450%, while jobs requiring real-time 3D skills in Canada paid 70% above the average market salary.
With more consumers engaging in 3D and AR tech, and with such technologies shaping their purchasing decisions, companies are thus looking for individuals who possess advanced digital skills.
But how do you break into the industry and prepare for the future? Moreover, how can you equip yourself with the right knowledge and skills to build a successful career in the RT3D industry? Hence, the need for the Circuit Stream Unity Developer Bootcamp.
