Description

In the rapidly evolving field of software development, the challenge of creating real-time, appealing visualizations and simulations is a critical industry demand (particularly in areas like gaming, virtual reality, and data visualization). In this Build Project, you'll wear the hat of a Software Engineer and develop interactive web-based graphics tool for visualization of 3D models. Under the supervision of an experienced Build Fellow, you'll design and implement user interfaces, optimizing graphics rendering performance, and integrating various types of data sources for dynamic visualization.

What you will learn

  • Use WebGL and JavaScript to create beautiful visualizations
  • Work with 3D models
  • Build tools following Agile Development Practices
Build Projects are 8-week experiences that operate on a rolling basis. Selected participants engage in weekly live workshops with a Build Fellow and 2-15 other students.
