About this event

WebAR is a critical skill for any AR developer's portfolio. It opens up an immersive new AR world for clients and customers alike—for anyone with access to a web browser. We will showcase WebAR development through a simple-to-use Cloud Editor and deployment to smartphones, tablets, computers, and AR/VR headsets.

Takeaways:

  • You don’t need to be an expert AR developer to create a powerful WebAR experience. Standard HTML and Javascript are enough! If you have web experience, you can learn WebAR quickly.
  • Use templates to start with! Templates make it easy to start building and learning from complicated projects with 0 Experience.
  • Own your development. Have total control over your launch timelines, development process, and collaboration with others without restrictive policies or app ecosystems.
  • Show your new WebAR skills to agencies who need your creativity. AR is relevant like never before. More and more brands are seeking to activate AR experiences for their audiences.

Agenda:

  • Walk through the development of a WebAR experience with 8th Wall's Cloud Editor, showing you how easy it is to get a WebAR experience up and running!
  • Delve into the top use cases for WebAR and clone a sample project.
  • Learn why brands are increasingly interested in browser-based AR experiences to showcase their value to audiences.
  • Introduction to 8cademy, a self-paced, online school where you can go from starting your first project to publishing a unique WebAR experience in less than 5 hours.
