What Our Students Say

Derek Martin

Derek Martin

Engineer Manager

“This class was outstanding! I have taken dozens of courses over my 30 years as an IT professional. However, this class has been the best class I have ever taken. Rich Beare was an outstanding instructor and his knowledge of Unity was evident in each and every class. I owe my newfound confidence and passion for working in Unity completely to Rich and Circuit Stream. I would highly recommend this class to anyone looking to get started in XR development.”

“The class surpassed my expectations. My background is in website/mobile UX design. I am fascinated at designing in a 3D setting. The class is very hands-on by guiding me to create multiple AR and VR games/tools. Also, I really appreciate all the help I received from my instructor since I have little programming experience. I highly recommend this class to anyone who's interested in learning more about AR/VR.”
