The keynote entitled Windows Mixed Reality: Developing for the Virtual Continuum, to be presented by Pete Daukintis, Technical Evangelist and Mike Taulty, Developer Evangelist will focus on bringing existing developers skills and apps to Windows Mixed Reality devices such as HoloLens and forthcoming immersive headsets.

The session will review the current Windows Mixed Reality landscape, followed by an in-depth demonstration on where they excel, as well as teaching prospective developers what they need to know regarding platforms, tools, frameworks, runtimes, languages and resources that are available to them.

Sessions also confirmed today for Develop:VR:

Catherine Allen, VR Curator and Producer will demonstrate how the knowledge of a new technology’s very existence can bring out society’s deep down hopes and fears about humanity’s future.
