More Info and Register
For our 23rd annual Holiday Party, we couldn't think of a better Geek holiday to celebrate than National Pi Day, even if it will be on the 15th and not the 14th. Pi Day was recognized as a National Holiday due to the work of long time GCUG enthusiast, Jonathon Zuck, now President of ACT The App Association back in 2009.
Back for some killer User Interface presentations are our usual suspects of speakers Tim Huckaby (12th appearance) and Billy Hollis (4th appearance).

Windows Holographic and the HoloLens device promises to open new doors for developers and customers. This session will introduce you to the world of Windows Holographic and HoloLens. You'll learn what you need to get started, what programming skills you can already leverage and what you need to learn. Just as the web and WPF changed how applications were designed and built, Windows Holographic introduces additional design and development constraints. You'll see how you can develop for HoloLens even if you don't have a device. You'll see HoloLens in action and have a chance to try HoloLens out yourself.
