The book is written in such a way that allows users to quickly get familiar with jargon de jour and to pick the best of breed components for your application stack.[Read More]
Do you have an avatar and what do you think of the 3D world? The FountainBlue had held today it's annual event, that gathered startups, enterprise companies and individuals that are excited about the opportunities in the virtual world application space. The virtual world is getting its adoption in gaming (both desktop and mobile), educational, healthcare, and overall collaborative environment spaces. Players in the space include Comcast, Sony, Sun, and of course startups like Masher Media, ISO Interactive, KohdSpace, among others.
There are multiple technologies involved in building the virtual world applications. Unity is often a preferred choice for 3D game development, Java is often in the list for programming languages, and for deployment Darkstar is used for massively scaled multi-player networking layer. Sun's Project Wonderland demo was focused on how to use open-source toolkit for creating collaborative 3D virtual world, and here is how it looks.
