HoloLens developer in one day

Coding Level 3
Advanced Level 3

Transform yourself into a HoloLens developer in one day. In this all-day post-conference workshop, we will teach you all you need to know to build the next generation of UWP apps: Holographic applications.

You will learn all about the platform, the unique capabilities of the device and all the ins and outs of the development of apps. In this day we will cover the following topics:

1. Overview of the device

2. Choices and platforms: DirectX versus Unity3D

3. HelloHoloWorld in Unity3D: your first app in Unity3D: the beginning of our app, built in Unity3D. We will use Unity3D for the rest of this course.

4. Gaze and Gestures

5. Voice input and spatial sounds

6. Spatial Surfaces

7. Deployment and the Store

8. Next steps

After all this you will have a thorough understanding of how to build your own great holographic experiences.
