Mixed reality encompasses a wide range of experiences that previously were considered to be only augmented reality or only virtual reality. In mixed reality, people, places, and objects from your physical and virtual worlds merge together in a blended environment that becomes your canvas. Interacting with holograms in mixed reality enables you to visualize and work with your digital content as part of your real world. Realize mixed reality’s promise with Microsoft HoloLens.
In this developer session, you will learn about Mixed Reality and the HoloLens and get a hands-on introduction to developing applications for the Windows Mixed Reality platform.
Your host of the day will be Nick Trogh, Senior Technical Evangelist at Microsoft.
A lunch will be offered during the session.
- This is a hands-on developer session so bring your developer laptop. If you already have a HoloLens, make sure to bring it too!
- We will be using the Unity middleware to develop applications – this session is not an introduction to Unity, so make sure you’re proficient with Unity development. There are great learning resources available on the Unity website.
- Make sure your laptop has the necessary software installedon it – you don’t want to miss out on the hands-on exercises because you need to install the tools!
