Ignite Australia 2017 Wrap-up


Last week I had the pleasure to present at Ignite Australia. I’ve missed the last few as it’s coincided with overseas trips so moving to February worked out well.

I presented Lessons from Hollywood: Building the interactions of tomorrow today. It was a big different to the techy talks I normally do as it was a bit more conceptual and covered a lot of things in a broader way.

Overall I was happy with it and I got to show Dippy to one lucky audience member. It was really nice a few people found me on the Thursday and asked if they could meet Dippy and lucky for them I  just so happened to have my HoloLens with me.

I had some fun with the projector half way through an could no longer see anything on my laptop screen even after trying duplicate, extend etc so just had to suck it up and demo from the projector.

Had a bit of a demo glitch but people didn’t seem to mind too much.

I showed a bunch of technologies and hopefully gave people some ideas.

Things we covered:

Surface Dial and the new Radial Controller Class

Kinect For Windows

Power BI


Cognitive Services

You can check out the presentation here. Unfortunately you miss out on seeing all the awesome audience participation I had as it’s just the laptop and microphone feed.
