Last day to get our tickets at our regular ticket price so make sure to grab yours right away! Only a few speakers left to meet and this time we have a duo who will be bringing us a session on Augmented Reality. Meet Ryan Groom and David Murphy.

An accomplished software developer and author, Ryan achieved his first published software application in 1992. Two software books co-authored by Ryan were published in 1997 and 1998, followed by a Security Publication for Microsoft in 2004. Ryan was the Security Business Guide for, a New York Times web property from 2006 to 2008. With his experience and expertise in networking, software development, and security, Ryan formed the company CyberSecure in 2002. CyberSecure became Microsoft Canada’s first Gold Security Partner and won the 2004 Microsoft Canada Impact Award for Excellence in Security Solutions for the work done with the Toronto Police Department. Ryan currently is the CTO of Kognitiv Spark where he leads a team of developers to build Holographic Remote Worker Support applications by leveraging AR and AI. In his spare time between holographic computing, Ryan films for his TV show Trekkit and helps out with the local Scouts Canada troop.

David Murphy will be presenting too, but we don’t have his bio, so we think he’s like the Teller side of the duo when it comes to biographical detail. How intriguing and mysterious.

So Ryan and David, if you were a programming language or technology, which one would you be and why?

Ryan says: I would be C#, because it can do many things, but underneath I am not as complicated as pointers. I am simple guy that like to wear many hats.

What do you like best about Maritime DevCon?

Ryan says: The ability to meet and socialize with people in my field from the local area. Many times I only get this opportunity when I travel and I’m looking forward to do that at home.

Why do you feel your session, Introduction to Augmented Reality Development with UrhoSharp, will bring value to Maritime DevCon attendees?

We want to show attendees that there is another option for cross-platform augmented reality application development.

What is the key take away attendees will get from your session?

You don’t need to be a Unity developer to be an AR developer

Thank you in advance for joining us for Maritime DevCon 2018 Ryan and David!
