I've been talking about the projects I've worked on this semester, but wasn't able to post too much about them... until now!
The UAT Commencement is coming up at the end of theis semester (May 5th), and there is a traditional "Tech Moment" at each graduation. I am super happy to be part of the team that built this year's tech moment! Out group decided to make a collaborative mobile game where everyone has to match a resource that the student needs and send it.
This semester I took a special topics course that was dedicated to creating a VR UAT tour experience. We built this app to be compatible with Google Cardboard on Android and iOS for anyone to download and take a look at! It is not 100% complete yet, but we're about two weeks until finished. The app features just about every room in the school with information inside. I actually got to write the descriptions (it helps having an ambassador in the class about the school!). I will post an update when this project is finalized.
There has been a lot of talk and excitement in the Linux/Ubuntu community about the Unity 8 desktop preview. Basically, Unity is the graphical "look" of Ubuntu. I didn't realize how badly we needed a modernized revamp until I saw it myself. I currently run Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS with Unity 7. "LTS" stands for "Long-term support" in which this version will get at least 5 years of security and maintenance updates until developers shift their focus to the next LTS version. So now we can look into the improvements and changes between Unity 7 and the Unity 8 preview!
This was actually based off of a video that I found recently, and one that can be viewed here:
