Augmented Reality is here and will change the world - come build the future! If you played Pokémon Go, you’ve seen Augmented Reality, but there is so much more. With mobile platforms now supporting Augmented Reality (e.g. Apples ARkit, Google’s ARCore) and AR content platforms rising, this is the time to learn about AR and how to use it. If you want to use AR technology, but are not sure how, this is your opportunity – we want to enable you to dive in and develop in AR so that you can use AR for your company and yourself, regardless of skill level or background. Come spend the weekend with us learning how to build Augmented Reality apps

This 2-Day Weekend Workshop includes:

  1. Developing a fully working Augmented Reality app (using ARKit & Unity) in a weekend Quality training in AR from leading developers with extensive teaching experience
