Due to illness, we are rescheduling Blia's talk on Push Notifications to another month later this year.
glTF™ (GL Transmission Format) https://www.khronos.org/gltf/ is a royalty-free file format for 3D scenes and models using the JSON standard.
It can be used for 3D printing, gaming, simulations and product design.
This talk will cover
- Basic concepts of 3D modeling (mesh, image, animation)
- Why glTF
- Take the glTF example http://www.nate-otto.net/gltf_demo.html, and modify it.
- Where to find additional resources and info
For some additional examples of what can be done with glTF, check out the demos at https://sketchfab.com/features/gltf
Coding is a great job. And sometimes it’s boring. Very boring. That’s why I enjoy teaching it. When I’m not designing ASP.NET web applications, I spend a few hours a week teaching my non-coder work buddies computer programming. As they learn, they discover interesting things you can do with code. That makes me remember why I like coding to begin with, and those SQL connectionstrings don’t seem so bad after all. I’ve been a front-and back-end coder for five years and look forward to many more.
Outside of work, I enjoy designing and building full-sized wooden kayaks and sailboats (ottosboatyard.wordpress.com), running Eau Claire Marathon events with my friends, and raising two nutball kids. You can find me at http://www.nate-otto.net/.
NOTE: For this event, we are meeting at CoLab the new co-working space for startups and entrepreneurs.
This meeting is sponsored by PESI (https://www.pesi.com/Home/Careers).
Networking and pizza start around 5:15 PM and the meeting will kick off at 6 PM.
