Mobile Monday Detroit Discusses 3D Development for VR/AR

Mobile Technology Association of Michigan’s Detroit Chapter of Mobile Monday Michigan discusses the skill sets required for developers focused on 3D in VR/AR

MobileMondayMichigan-LogoDETROIT, MI – Mobile Monday Detroit will explore 3D virtual (VR) and augmented (AR) reality development skills and resources to help Michigan’s developer community be on the fore-front of this exciting technology that provides yet another way to enhance connected experiences.

While traditional developer skills are useful, VR and AR require different tools and skill sets which to-date have generally been more popular in gaming development, but are more and more being utilized for business-oriented applications.

To help our developer community understand these differences, Mobile Monday Detroit will hear from representatives from some leading firm’s doing work in this space:

  • Ali Al-Aasm, Co-founder/Developer, Red Piston
  • Richard Geyer, Engineering Lead, Vectorform

The event is free to attend but advance reservations via Meetup ARE REQUIRED in order to attend; make your reservation at http://meetup.com/Mobile-Monday-Detroit. Refreshments will be served courtesy of our host and sponsor, RIIS. Free parking is available onsite.

Mobile Monday Detroit is sponsored by the Mobile Technology Association of Michigan (MTAM) and RIIS.
