HoloLens breached a barrier, a barrier between the digital and the real world, bringing digital content into our world.
Over the past year the HoloLens has continued to create new ways to visualize, to change education and the medical industry.
HoloLens is not only for games it is a Business platform (that is game enabled)
Using Unity we can create an experience that lets you bring digital content and interact with the real world.
During this session we will take a look at the HoloLens hardware, the possibilities, the limitations and tooling.
We will take a look at the basics of Unity and also create a HoloLens app from scratch complete with Gaze, Air Tap, Spatial mapping and Voice using Mixed Reality Toolkit.
Speakers: Jimmy Engström
Ever since Jimmy got his first ZX Spectrum at the age of 7 he hasn't stopped programming. During the day he is a .NET developer and he does all the fun stuff during his spare time. Together with his wife he also runs a company "Azm dev" which is focused on HoloLens and Windows development. He is really passionate about Windows development, HoloLens or well you could say the .NET platform really. He and his wife also runs a code intensive user group (Coding After Work) that focuses on helping participants with code and design problems, and a podcast with the same name. Back in 2011 he received the "geek of the year" award, a title well deserved. He is certainly living up to the title with everything from developing and gadgets to superheroes and cosplaying at the sci-fi faire. He speaks at various types of events including NDC, Devsum, hackathons, Swetugg, Øredev and TechDays which led to him becoming a Microsoft MVP in Windows Development.
He occasionally blogs at www.apeoholic.se

Her favorite topics is UX/UI and Mixed reality and other futuristic tech. She's a Windows Development MVP. Together with her husband she runs a company called "AZM dev " which is focused on HoloLens and Windows development.
Occasionally blogs at www.catoholic.se which kind of shows her love for cats... and pink.. mostly pink.
