This introductory session will provide an overview of AR (Augmented Reality) tools and best practices. The session will be broken into two 30 minute segments for a presentation and development demo. Participants can expect to learn about the current trends in AR, along with development tips for creating 2D and 3D AR experiences. 3D modelling and 2D animation will also be discussed, along with the advantages and disadvantages for each when developing for AR experiences. Finally, participants can expect to learn about image tracking optimization for AR along with the best practices for 3D modeling, 2D animation, and interaction design. All the software discussed in this session will be open source, and the slides will be provided to participants after the session.
