Using HoloToolkit to create your first HoloLens app

Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality has been around for years and years, but now we have the ability to interact with the digital content in the real world with Mixed Reality. Last year Microsoft released the HoloLens for developers, introducing the first Mixed Reality device. We will take a look at the hardware, the possibilities, the limitations, the tooling and we will even create our first holographic app complete with Gaze, AirTap, Spatial mapping and Voice using HoloToolkit.

Ever since Jimmy got his first ZX Spectrum at the age of 7 he hasn’t stopped programming. During the day he is an .NET developer and he does all the fun stuff during his spare time. Together with his wife he also runs a company ”azm dev” which is focused on HoloLens and windows development. He is really passionate about Windows development, HoloLens or well you could say the .NET platform really. He and his wife (Jessica) also runs a code intensive user group (Coding After Work) that focuses on helping participants with code and design problems, and a podcast with the same name. Back in 2011 he received the ”geek of the year” award, a title well deserved. He is certainly living up to the title with everything from developing and gadgets to superheroes and cosplaying at the sci-fi fair. He speaks at various types of events including NDC, Devsum, hackathons, Swetugg and TechDays which led to him becoming a Microsoft MVP in Windows Development.

He occasionally blogs at www.apeoholic.se.
