While most HoloLens developers come to mixed reality either from line-of-business development or game development, Julie’s background is much more interesting. She is an IT project manager with a scientific background who is learning the technology as an enthusiast, taking courses on Unity and using the HoloDevelopers Slack group as a way to build her knowledge and relationships. Having received support through this community, she also gives back through her online museum, ARtefactVR, and by leading community HoloLens projects like myxd3D – which supports 3D chat on the HoloLens. Julie brings skills and perspectives to the MR community that broaden it and make it richer.
