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

Nate Otto
I am a full-stack developer with five years JavaScript experience, six years of 3D modeling and about a year of WebVR. I currently teach HTML and basic event-driven programming at my workplace, and am a newly-accepted member of the CVTC IT adjunct faculty pool.

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.
