Boston Unity Group {B.U.G.] - Designing a VR Healthcare Application

18:30 - 20:30 May 29, 2019 à Cambridge, United States

Hi BUG! For our May 29th meetup, Zachary Barryte and Behnam Sattar will talk about overcoming challenges in creating a VR application for healthcare.

About the talk:
Unity excels at providing an environment for rapid prototyping and development, but what do you do if a bug in your code is the difference between a patient getting better or not at all? What if you need to prove that what you’re making is effective and correct? What if this is true across multiple code bases? If this sounds like something that you think then, you will enjoy this talk. In this talk, we’ll share strategies we’ve used while developing a VR application for treatment, over the course of 2+ years. We will share best practices and learnings we’ve used to accomplish:
* Performing native actions not provided by the Unity API on Android
* Designing our own package management system - and why we did this
* Implementing a design paradigm beyond Unity’s to improve test-ability
* Improving VR performance on different platforms

About the speakers:
Zachary Barryte is an artist, programmer, and storyteller who's been making comedic games and cartoons since graduating from MIT in '13. Currently, Zach is developing treatment software with Luminopia.

Behnam Sattar believes in a combination of art and technology. He’s done his graduate studies on computer vision and has always enjoyed working on projects bringing art and technology together. Currently, Behnam is software engineer at Luminopia working on treatment facilitation.
