Name: Antonia Forster
Job Title: AR & VR Programmer

Antonia is a self-taught AR (augmented reality) and VR (virtual reality) programmer – technologies that blend the virtual and real worlds. She creates inventive games and applications for AR and VR technologies, like developing covid-safe touch screen technologies, developing virtual rock concerts or 3D-scanning building sites for virtual safety training.

STEM teaches you skills like how to approach a problem that you’ve never seen before."

R (augmented reality) and VR (virtual reality) technical specialist, building games, demos and applications and teaching others how to use Unity software.

I don’t have a degree in computer science…I originally wanted to be a TV wildlife presenter! One day I decided I wanted to learn to code, just before I turned 30. I then started showing and presenting what I’d been working on to others and got a job with a tech company.

I work from home. I get up and go to my home office. I then decide what new thing I’m going to learn that day – currently I have a new piece of technology that I’m trying a learn, an AR headset.

A lot of different jobs are open to you if you do a STEM degree. The jobs that you’re going to go in to might not even exist yet. STEM teaches you skills like how to approach a problem that you’ve never seen before.

Learn to code; learn programming! There are courses online that are totally free which take you from knowing nothing at all. Also if you try learning something and don’t understand it at first – that’s ok, and that’s not a bad sign! Every day I have to do something that I don’t understand and have never done before. Grown ups in all kinds of jobs are still figuring things out as they go along.

Career Path

Antonia switched careers and taught herself how to code. However, many people go through education in Computer Science to learn  programming, app development, IT or video game development. 
Many Universities offer Computer Science as a degree, for which you would sometimes need an A-level in Maths. There are also many Higher Apprenticeships and Degree Apprenticeships in software development, data analysis, cyber security and more.

How can I learn to code by myself? 

If you want to teach yourself to code in your own time, there are lots of websites that can teach you different coding languages for free such as Code Academy.
There are many coding languages. HTML and CSS languages are great if you want to build websites. Python is one of the fastest-to-learn languages that is used in many applications. Antonia develops Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality applications and games in a software program called Unity, which uses the programming language C#. There are tutorials for how to get started with Unity and C#, as well as most other languages, on Youtube.
