A Look into Azure Spatial Anchors

Back in January 2015, Microsoft announced the future of augmented reality computing when they announced the HoloLens.

Get In The Box (Container)

Last week I continued my journey exploring gRPC by creating a simple example. Today, I am going to take that project one step further by adding Docker support to the server.

The mobile device then needed to pass the data to an Azure Event Hubs endpoint. The data was then going to be sent through Azure Stream Analytics to various... Continue Reading →
