What Will I Be Learning?

Who Should Attend?
If you’re just curious about the tech, you’ll learn where it’s headed. For example, if you’re involved in photography or graphics and need to be paying attention to what’s possible and what’s coming soon, this is a great event to come to to understand future VR and camera trends.
If you’re in Android development, we’ll get into the details, and show you how to fully customize the camera. We can break through the software limits of the camera and take longer 4K 360° videos. Build on your Android skills and learn about AR/VR enterprise and industrial markets as well as user requirements, hardware features. You’ll get feedback directly from professional AR/VR content producers. It’s as easy as building an Android mobile phone app.
