Jumpstart Your Augmented Reality Knowledge & Immediately Apply What You've Learned
Augmented reality offers one of the most exciting development opportunities for developers, designers, and app makers. From marketing to games to entertainment, augmented reality is quickly becoming a must-have mobile category. To support the growth of the augmented reality ecosystem, DAQRI is hosting a free 2-day Augmented Reality Bootcamp at the DAQRI offices, located at Los Angeles Center Studios, June 26 and 27. The event’s main objectives are building awareness expertise in the community around this new medium where your imagination is the only limit.
Augmented Reality Bootcamp + Ideastorm
The Bootcamp will consist of a full day of professional training with AR experts Unity, Qualcomm Vuforia, and DAQRI. On Day 2, designers, developers, marketers and students will have the chance to immediately apply what they’ve learned in an Ideastorm setting. Prizes will be awarded for the best AR app concepts created during the Ideastorm.

Do I have to come with a team?
You absolutely can, but it's not necessary. You'll meet like-minded augmented reality enthusiasts with different skillsets at the event.
Do I have to build an app to win a prize?
It's unrealistic to expect to be able to build a complete augmented reality application in a couple of days. So to win a prize, you will just need to present a detailed concept based on the foundation of technical and UX knowledge you've gained during the event. Building a functional prototype – of at least the central component of your concept – and presenting it in a unique way will get extra points.
Can I just attend the agency mixer?
Yes. If you would like to just participate in the mixer, sign up using the ticket "Free Registration for ONLY Agency Mixer Thurs 6/27."
