Welcome to 2014 and OC Interactive!
Thank you all for your attendance and participation at our August meeting.
Our September meeting will be held on 9/2. The agenda will cover:
• Augmented Reality: The New Multimedia
If you haven’t heard of augmented reality (AR), that’s okay. Chances are is that you’ve already seen it. Recently, there’s been a lot of interest in this growing field of technology and justifiably so.
It’s going to change everything.
“Semico Research predicts that revenues related to augmented reality could grow to $600 billion by 2016. The company notes that over 864 million high-end cell phones will be AR enabled by the end of 2014, and that AR capabilities will be baked into 103 million automobiles by 2020.” - http://torquemag.io/reality-ready-augmentation/
So what is it and why should you care? It’s the next big technological advancement since the “multimedia” revolution of the mid-90s. Do you remember the thrill? AR is all of that and more.
In guest speaker Patrick Eleazar’s (http://www.linkedin.com/in/patrickeleazar/) presentation, he’ll cover the AR basics:
• What is it?
• Who are the players?
• What are the big opportunities?
• How to get started.
And if there’s time, he’ll do a live AR demo.
The AR future will be awesome!
• Good Project Management & Teaming Practices: Ever wonder how successful project managers motivate a team to work collaboratively? What does it take to be a team player? Caprice will lead a discussion about best practices to employ, whether you are a project manager or member of a team.
We will meet at the Digital Media Center starting at 6:30 pm. Please contact Michael Champagne if you are willing to help with food.
We look forward to seeing YOU on September 2nd!
