Learning Pathway

Oppkey's Learning Pathway is a guided learning experience that helps anyone interested in breaking into RICOH THETA 360° camera development. Gain the skills you need to build a mobile app that controls the camera, regardless of prior experience.

The Getting Started Guide focuses on using the THETA WebAPI – commands sent over Wi-Fi – to build a mobile app. The examples provided use Dart to build mobile apps. The source code is downloadable from GitHub.

The tutorials are in a sequence that will take you from inexperienced to being able to control the camera in key areas. It does not cover live streaming.
