OPEN TALK: The Web Developer's Guide to Virtual Reality
Are you a newbie breaking into the wide world of Virtual Reality? No fear, I was too.

We'll cover how I made the leap, what resources exist to rapidly learn and start building, and chat about all of the mistakes I made.

Full Stack Development - Media Technology (VR, Film, Animation)

Have you always wondered what it takes to transition into media technology? Are you fascinated by cinematic VR and storytelling? Today’s feature films and cinematic VR represent a fusion of creativity and technology. It’s the thrill of combining artistic expression with the cutting-edge tech that drives innovation forward. The number of technologists and artists involved on a feature film runs into the hundreds, each playing their own little part in turning the filmmaker’s vision into reality.

In this session we will explore some of the core technology that goes into feature film post production and its application into cinematic VR. How do the frontend and backend stacks look like in a VR studio? What are the tools and technologies that are a “must know” in a production environment? Join us for this behind the scenes look at the exciting world of media technology.

OPEN TALK: Building and Designing Bots and Bot Architectures
Bots are gaining momentum, and with so many bot platforms, frameworks, and services out there it’s hard to know where to start. If you're interested in building your own bot chances are you already have most of the skills required to do so. In this talk I’ll walk through a series of bots built on different bot platforms, like Slack and Twilio. We’ll talk about simple request/response based bots as well as conversational bots that use natural language processing and other techniques to engage your users. Throughout the talk I’ll discuss the different architecture and design challenges we faced and the strategies and architectures we employed to solve them.
