Hi everyone, and welcome to the MR Tech Community! I'm Nick from the MR Academy in San Francisco, and when I'm not burying my head in one of my numerous different code projects, I host events and do presentations at the local Microsoft Reactor! Or at least, I used to.
My team stopped doing in-person events towards the start of the year, and that's turned out to be a pretty cool thing since we got to move many of our events online. It has been really awesome having easier access to amazing speakers that weren't available in-person, and chatting with developers from all over the world is a really humbling experience as well!
Remember when we used to do things in-person? Hah! Wild. Here's a few more people from the MR Academy onstage at the reactor: Dan Escudero, Jesse McCulloch, and myself, with Jo Ryall hanging out in the background!
But the one event I loved the most, the MR Workgroup, didn't translate very well into an online event. Twice a month I used to host a small group of MR developers in the Reactor kitchen, and we'd just hang out and work on projects, share ideas, chat about the latest news, whatever was on our minds at the time! It was one of the highlights of my week, and I miss everyone who used to come out and join us.
So we've tried to make this space feel like that workgroup! It's definitely not 1:1, but I think it'll come close. So think of this as a place to share, learn socialize, a developer workgroup on the web!
The Mixed Reality team has also been itching for a platform to blog on, so you'll see some great content from our developers pop up here! We've got a cool line-up for this week, from some incredibly talented developers!
Thank you for dropping in and being part of the MR community, and before I sign off here, I'm going to take you on a quick tour of the space!
So! Make yourselves at home, introduce yourselves and say hi, maybe even share some screenshots of what you're working on, if you can! I know I'm definitely looking forward to meeting everyone :)
