Welcome to augmented reality, where we add layers to the existing world to improve comprehension, play around with fun effects, create planning tools for interior design and it doesn't stop there!
Augmented reality is growing rapidly as an everyday technology, and valued at over $150 billion dollars, according to Forbes. That said, there is endless opportunity for designers to create for this space. Join us on November 8 at AppDynamics and learn to design, prototype, and create Augmented Reality apps. Tickets are available at https://uxnight40.eventbrite.com.
Tyler will give you a suite of tips and considerations of how to design an app with augmented reality features . You'll learn about:
Tyler Wilson is an interaction designer for XR, based out of San Francisco, CA. He has a passion for teaching and entertaining people.

In this talk, Austin will teach you how he created "Paint Space", an augmented reality app similar to TiltBrush that maps the environment and allows us to paint in 3D spaces using our mobile phone. He will also share how he designed the user interface, failures and successes, and things to look out for when designing an AR app.
Austin McCasland is a product designer and hacker working with conventional platforms (web, mobile) and emerging tech (voice, VR, AR). He has taught courses ranging from VR Design to mobile performance optimization, and believes that the key to supercharging your design practice in emerging tech is to dig into code.
Helios Interactive is an experimental media agency that explores the intersection of advertising, branding, and XR.* They'll showcase their mixed reality collaborations with Sprint, NFL, and various other companies and walk us through a video demo reel talking about their projects and how they created them.
