Davide Zordan – Unity for .NET + Paul DeCarlo – Microsoft IoT

15th October 2020 on Zoom

What's it about?

We’ve got two cracking speakers this month.

Davide Zordan will be talking about Unity for .NET Developers and Paul DeCarlo will be discussing everything Microsoft IoT

Davide Zordan – Unity and AR/VR for the .NET Developer:

We all see the cool demos of how augmented and virtual reality are going to be the future of our interaction with devices, but it often feels like there’s a significant barrier to getting started in building these types of apps.

This session is here to help. If you’ve ever thought about developing for Oculus Rift, HTC Vive or the Windows Mixed Reality headsets, but haven’t known where to start, this is the session for you.

Davide will present what he has learned building a small game, set in a mysterious dungeon using Unity and the SteamVR plugin. We’ll explore how to import assets from the Unity store, how to implement locomotion techniques and interactions using the motion/touch controllers, including some tips for optimising performance and avoid motion sickness.

Come along, there’ll be .NET code, demos and we’ll have some fun looking at how you can get started on your first VR/AR project.

Paul DeCarlo – Microsoft Azure IoT:

Paul will be discussing everything Microsoft Azure IoT from IoT Hubs, through Digital Twins to IoT Central.
