Recap of Evolve MeetUp #4
Christmas atmosphere, hot wine, cookies and food! All that for free! Come on, who wouldn’t come to this MeetUp? Okay, here is what was happening at Evolve MeetUp #4:
- Augmented Reality by crew Impaddo
- Ionic Framework by Simeon Bugarija
- Evolve Supported Project: Clean City
Mirna: “Hey Sandro, did you hear about Augmented Reality?”
Sandro: “Well, not really”
Mirna: “You know, that is like a second layer on our reality”
Sandro: “Is that something related to Pokemons?”
Mirna: “Actually, you are right. Pokemon GO is a great example of Augmented Reality”
Our moderators presented a short intro to the Augmented Reality presentation, and in this way made the topic a little bit understandable to the audience even before the presentation and live demo started. Soon after that, the main words have been given to Ivan Matok and Ivo Valčić.
Ivan Matok explained to us what is that Augmented Reality and how much similar is it to Virtual Reality and what is actually the main difference.
“The main difference is that for Virtual Reality you don’t need to leave the sofa, you just have VR glasses and for example you see how tall it is Eiffel tower is, right there from the sofa through VR glasses, while for AR you must to go to some huge field or some place where Eiffel tower will interact with reality and show you how tall it is.”
– Ivan Matok
After the theoretical part of Augmented Reality, we had a live demo where Ivo Valčić showed us how to program the AR on iOS and soon after that, we had a 3 different AR demonstration.
Ionic Framework is codebase cross-platform tool for mobile apps and Simeon Bugarija explained us about this during his presentation.
“Ionic is completely free, open source framework which is built on Agular, besides that it has nice default UI that is easy to customize, and you write a code once and you deliver to both of platforms – iOS and Android!”
– Simeon Bugarija
Simeon presented us Ionic Framework and soon after that switched to the Clean City presentation.
Simeon Bugarija won the third place on the Hackathon Google I/O Extended 2017 back this year and after that he found the interest to apply his project idea as a next evolve supported project on our MeetUp.
A pilot project focuses to Zadar region where all local people here in Zadar can download the app and start using for their environment by reporting issues in several categories, such as damages benches, damaged trees, roads etc.
