Introduction to AR: Tools and Frameworks for Your First App

Register for this workshop here

About this workshop

This is an introduction into AR (Augmented/Immersive Reality & interactive technologies) with some very basic "theoretical/mathematical" fundamentals on computer vision (including camera model, camera geometry, etc), but also with an detailed overview of existing tools and frameworks to create your own application.

After this workshop this you will be able to understand the basic concepts behind how AR works, and the things you will need to consider when building an AR app.

What to expect

This workshop will be suitable for everyone who is interested in finding out the technology behind any AR application. No specific mathematical knowledge or high-level programming skills are needed. Basic experiences with Java and/or Android programming might be useful (but not essential) as I will focus on practical examples mostly for Android.
