HoloLens – Developing Augmented and Mixed Reality! – Greg Levenhagen


Revolutionary technology can lead to disruptive innovation. We are witnessing the dawn of augmented reality and the Microsoft HoloLens is leading the way. The HoloLens provides a new landscape for us, as developers and innovators, to break new ground with more emerging experiences.

This discussion will briefly introduce tools for the HoloLens that are often not shown in the videos you may have seen and then spend the majority of time on various developer scenarios. We will go beyond the built in apps, look at the development environment, choices you have and what it is like creating our own apps and games.

You will leave knowing what skill sets are needed, what types of apps and games lend themselves to easier migrations and a basic understanding of how to develop with the HoloLens. This session and demonstrations will focus on using Visual Studio, Unity, C#, DirectX and C++.
