Content for the Digility Session - Advanced Mixed Reality Development and Best Practices

I had a good time at the Digility conference in Cologne delivering my session "Advanced Mixed Reality Development and Best Practices".

The presentation covered best practices we learned while developing for the HoloLens since 2015 and my Top 10 HoloLens Developer Recommendations 2018. I also talked and demoed exciting new things with MR + AI showcasing near real-time object recognition running on the HoloLens and leveraging WinML for on-device Deep Learning inference. You can see a video of the demo embedded at the bottom of this post. I also showed how the new RS5 Windows 10 update brings hardware-accelerated inference to the HoloLens via DirextX 12 drivers.

The slide deck can be downloaded here. It's quite large with embedded videos and I recommend to download it.
The WinML object recognition demo source updated to RS5 APIs is here.
The session was recorded and the video is available here and embedded below:

Also, here's a video recording of my WinML object recognition demo targeting industrial scenarios including an Easter egg:
