Never has there been a more exciting time to be on the forefront of technology, with HoloLens poised to be a major game-changer.

SSW was one of the 1st companies in Australia to purchase the $3000 HoloLens developer edition

Microsoft originally assumed it would be a gaming product, but surprisingly, these dev editions are not mostly being purchased by entertainment or gaming companies. In fact the business demand of this product has dramatically outperformed Microsoft’s expectations.

During this presentation, Stephen Carter will take you through

  • The history of the hologram, from fiction and Sci-Fi to reality
  • Commercial applications of HoloLens, including how this technology will be such a game-changer across many industries
  • Some fun applications
  • How you can easily get onboard with HoloLens development…. and NO, you don’t need a HoloLens to get started! (Please checkout Part 2 below)

With an actual, real, true life, working HoloLens to demonstrate, this presentation is not to be missed.

Lastly, the VS Code extensions allows C# and XAML to use VS Code with IntelliSense-like experience, C# and XAML Hot Reload, and more.
