    Hello everyone I was wondering would it be possible to become a AR developer with only getting certifications and online courses from unity?

    I'm a lead Unity developer for Accenture UK&I extended reality studio. I only have a college (NOT university) qualification. I have no unity certifications and have completed no online courses.
    I'm near enough completely self taught.

    If I can do it, you can too! (Granted, I left university 18 years ago and it's taken me this long to get here.)

    I helped develop the following things:

    A degree does not dictate whether or not you can be an AR developer. You could take AR classes in school, or you could teach yourself. But ultimately, someone has to learn it to teach it. Just go learn the thing, then you know the thing, then you are the thing.
