HoloLens meetup

The Microsoft's HoloLens is a sleek, flashy headset with transparent lenses. You can see the world around you, but suddenly that world is transformed - with 3D objects floating in midair, virtual screens on the wall and your living room covered in virtual characters running around.

Introduction to the Microsoft HoloLens – by Joost van Schaik

In the first part of this presentation, Joost will introduce you to the Microsoft HoloLens. The second part of the presentation will focus on how to build a HoloLens application from scratch and gives you insights into the process of building amazing applications for the HoloLens.

Joost van Schaik ( ) is a senior business apps developer at Wortell ( ), Windows Development MVP, and one of the early adopters of the Microsoft HoloLens. You can follow his blog at .

The HoloLens Experience

After the presentation, you will have all the knowledge to start building your own applications for the HoloLens. The only part you are missing is the actual experience itself. Joost will bring 2 Microsoft HoloLens devices from Wortell and we will set up a room for you to try out and experience the Microsoft HoloLens itself.

We hope to see you at 4 August!

Food & drinks are free/ sponsored by Effectory, but please let us know if you want (or don't want) to join for dinner. Otherwise we either order too much food and need to throw away food or order too less and you stay hungry. Thanks!
