Event description


Calling all designers, progammers, and makers! The word is out: Augmented Reality is the future. With Apple’s recent release of the ARKit, Google’s ARCore, and AR content rising in popularity, now is the perfect time to get in the game! Companies know they should utilize AR technology, but are not sure how. This is the opportunity for you- the future thinker and avid learner- to dive in, carve out your path, and show them the way.

This workshop will focus on location-based triggers. Augmented Reality revolves around dozens of triggers, events that prompt the experiences. In this particular case, Chance Roth will walk us through using geo-coordinates to spark an AR experience, and in turn, teach us how to make our own AR galleries.

You will leave with a new knowledge of the augmented world, the ability to build an AR application, a new network of passionate people and a great start to your AR future!
