Virtual Reality - 188

Class was great! You do have to learn the game engine almost by yourself, but you learn a lot. No tests and just a term long project! You work with 2 other people to accomplish this task.

You have to spend a lot of time for this class but in the end it is worth it!!! One of my favorite classes at UCLA!

Mutz is probably among the best lecturers I've ever had. Very clean, professional slides and the guy knows what he's talking about, since he also works at a pretty high up position for a tech company.

The class covers very relevant and interesting technology (Ruby on Rails, TravisCI, Git, Amazon Web Services), and not your standard Lisp / C stuff that you need to run in a command line on the Linux servers. He assigns reading and practice from the textbook, and those are not enforced but highly recommended. 100% of your grade comes from a group project / report due at the end of the class.

The project involves building a web app and using a variety of techniques to scale it to handle thousands of users. The textbook and a little bit of the class cover web development and how to incorporate features into your app but the main focus is on scaling, so mostly concerning the database / backend. You can go tryhard mode and make a killer web app or you can just build a simple app; either way you'll get the same grade if you do all the methods he mentions for scaling.
