## Speakers

### Andre Louis - @freakyfwoof
Andre Louis is a musician, lover of all-things technology, self-proclaimed geek and loves trying out new gear whenever he can get a hold of it.
With an ear for high-quality sound, he creates and designs for apps and programs such as Blind Square GPS for iOS, Twitterrific for Mac, and Chicken Nugget, a Twitter Client for windows.
He strongly believes in using off-the-shelf products wherever possible, and not bespoke items for the visually-impaired, so you'll
often find him making music in Logic Pro X, with his MacBook air and an iPhone off to the side.
Fascinated by new and emerging tech, he'll gladly tell you that one of his ambitions is to own a self-driving car when they become
available, so he doesn't have to rely on other people's good will and transport to get to gigs.

### Ruben van der Leun - @rvdleun
Ruben is a freelance software developer and self-proclaimed VR Evangelist.
Ruben will be speaking about Augmented Reality (AR), Virtual Reality (VR), its online possibilities through webVR, its uses with regards to accessibility, and his own work on this subject.
