The 3 most interesting trends from Unity's Vision Summit

I was thrilled to represent Atlatl Software at the Vision VR Summit in Los Angeles, CA a few weeks ago. The summit was sponsored by Unity3D, and is one of many events throughout the year aimed at enabling and educating Unity's users.

Throughout the conference, a few trends emerged for me. Here are the three that were the most significant for me.

How to gracefully deal with your startup's growth

In my experience, the biggest obstacle a startup faces is growth. At one of my previous companies, we had meteoric growth of hiring 100 people in eight months. You're not ready for something that.

The pains one industry is experiencing can be completely different from another, but yet so many similarities.

College of Charleston students engineering with Atlatl


Students from the College of Charleston who participate in the Computer Science program are required to complete a senior project each year where they partner with a local company. The goal of this exercise is to gain exposure to the professional world of software development and to begin forming relationships within Charleston's tech community.

 

Atlatl was lucky enough to participate in the program this year and to be partnered with CoC seniors Robert Moore, Frederic Lester, and Angel Rodriguez. There were several stipulations placed on the students but the most important one was compliance with Atlatl's partner, Unity and their engine for creating 3D configurations.
