Google wants to teach you how to develop your own ARCore apps
AR is still a budding technology, but it has the prospects to become ubiquitous in the future. Both Google and Apple offer a for-the-masses AR platform for their respective ecosystems, in the form of ARKit and ARCore, which can be implemented by developers to create all kinds of interesting experiences. But getting into augmented reality is not an easy thing for people without any programming experience, and Google wants to change this.
In a bid to help foster a new generation of AR creators, Google has collaborated with Coursera to release a free introductory course to augmented reality and ARCore. Even if you have zero prior experience with building augmented reality experiences, the 15-hour program walks you through all the basics you need to start working on your own project using Google's ARCore development kit and tools like Poly (a library of pre-made 3D objects for use in AR and VR).
