Hello everyone.

We have decided to phase out the Mixed Reality Forums over the next few months in favor of other ways to connect with us.

The first way we want to connect with you is our mixed reality developer program, which you can sign up for at https://aka.ms/IWantMR.

The plan between now and the beginning of May is to clean up old, unanswered questions that are no longer relevant. The forums will remain open and usable.

On May 1st we will be locking the forums to new posts and replies. They will remain available for another three months for the purposes of searching them, and then they will be closed altogether on August 1st.

So, where does that leave our awesome community to ask questions? Well, there are a few places we want to engage with you. For technical questions, please use Stack Overflow, and tag your questions using either hololens or windows-mixed-reality. If you want to join in discussions, please do so in the HoloDevelopers Slack, which you can join by going to https://aka.ms/holodevelopers. And always feel free to hit us up on Twitter @MxdRealityDev.

Must have skills for Hololens development

I am trying to get a team together for an educational experience with a Puppet. I have mostly worked in the past with quadriplegics and VR. Would someone tell me a few of the skill sets I must look for in this team. I want to bring a puppet to life, A friend of mine has designed for Sesame Street and he has given me permission to use a cool Monster. Any advice here is greatly appreciated.

  • Not 100% sure what you mean by "skills", and I am not an expert, but as a base. There is a UNITY "games" development system you can use to create the holograms, then feed them through MICROSOFT VISUAL STUDIOS. Have you been here yet? https://dev.windows.com/en-us/holographic/academy This is where you learn to develop.

  • Developing for HoloLens requires both coding and design skills.

    As mentioned by @HoloCaster, Unity is a recommended development tool. Using Unity, you will write your codein the C# language.

    The following link may help to understand the design considerations and skills required.

    Depends on the type of application you want to build.

    2D apps:
    Basically Windows 10 UWP APIs
    C#.Net (or VB.Net or C++)
    XAML (or DirectX/D3D)
    Visual Studio 2015
    HoloLens Emulator (or HoloLens device)

    Holographic apps:

    C#.Net
    Unity3D Editor
    3D Modeling / texturing / animation / particle fx
    Unity3D Programming/Scripting
    Maths and Physics concepts
    Image processing and Computer Vision algorithms
    Visual Studio 2015
    HoloLens Emulator (or HoloLens device)

    You could also replace Unity3D with another game or graphics engine or even go barebones DirectX using C++ or SharpDX/C#.
