Over the next decade a new form of digital interaction will be entering our lives and start rendering our smartphone screens a thing of the past. Augmented and virtual reality (AR/VR) are poised to be the next big change in our daily habits and disruptor to long standing industries.  Beacons, Internet of Things, new kinds of sensors and artificial intelligence systems will cause us to interact with the world differently. This presentation serves to introduce you to this world: the technology that powers it, and the people and companies that are behind it. 

Our presenter is Brian Best, a software developer in Sydney. Brian has been developing with augmented reality platform since 2013 and is the co-founder of the Sydney's AR/VR group. 

Brian Best is a skilled software developer and technology evangelist. He also happens to be the co-founder of the Sydney's AR/VR group, which is focused on helping other mixed reality developers create larger than life immersive experiences. He is passionate about mixed reality and looks to help other understand how this beautiful technology can help them.
