With the recent introductions of ARKit on iOS and ARCore on Android, developers are using augmented reality to create a new wave of innovative applications—as well as a lot of really stupid stuff.
The first thing we’re going to do is demo all of those apps, because I think you need to know they exist—for science. Once that’s done we’ll talk about the ARKit and ARCore APIs on the off chance you might use them to build something that is genuinely useful. Seriously though, augmented reality is really cool so it’s worth knowning the basics, and we’ll cover those to get you up to speed. When your coworkers ask about the latest hit AR app to hit the stores you’ll be able to act knowledgable and stuff.
Come learn what the augmented reality hype is all about, and how you can building AR apps yourself!
