Silicon Valley Code Camp : October 13 & 14, 2018session
Augmented Reality for the masses
We will cover what is Augmented Reality (AR) and why it's considered the next big thing in tech by explore how to build an AR app on three different platforms.
1) iOS ARKit 2) Android ARCore 3) Game engines Unity and Unreal.
About This Session
Now that both Android and iOS have augmented reality (AR) frameworks shipping with their IDE we will see an explosion of AR technology. This session will provide an overview of building on ARKit (iOS) and ARCore (Android).
We start with what is AR and why it is considered the next big thing in tech by exploring the history and some mind bending demos.
After building a solid understanding of the what and why, we start diving into the how.
We will explore how to build an AR app on three different platforms:
Native iOS using XCode with Swift
Native Android using Android Studio with Kotlin
Native iOS & Android using game engines Unity and Unreal
We will outline the advantages and disadvantages of each to help differentiate the different development processes.
The hope is that after attending this talk the audience would be excited about the technology and have the appropriate knowledge to start down the path of AR development.
