As the ecosystem around Mixed Reality heats up it’s getting more and more difficult to keep up to date on all the latest news and changes. This weekly newsletter / link blog will include links to many Microsoft articles as well as other blogs and resources posted online by the community at large. This may also include links on occasion that are not related to Microsoft but have relevance on Mixed Reality, Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality, and other related areas.
Welcome to Mixed Reality Weekly from BuildHololens.com!! My name is Chris Pietschmann, and I’ve been doing a Weekly post like this over on BuildAzure.com for almost a year, and I though it was time to start doing the same thing over here for HoloLens, Mixed Reality, Augmented Reality and other related content. I really hope you find value in this weekly post / newsletter and subscribe to BuildHololens.com to get it in your email inbox every week. Thanks!
