HTC Vive Dev Kit

Posted on .

I visited Valve in Seattle after Oculus Connect 2. They were great hosts, and agreed to send me a dev kit to work with and show off. Today it arrived.

My Colleagues are apparently all old hands now at looking good while wearing a VR headset.

Ready Player One - Thoughts on OC2

Posted on .

Ready Player One

So many thoughts about Oculus Connect 2.

The theme for the event is definitely revealed by the inclusion of Ready Player One in all the conference bags. I’ve long since read it (as I suspect have most here). Facebook definitely foresees a world where everyone interacts in an environment similar to Oasis.

OC2 - Keynote

It’s sooo much bigger than last year, and so much more serious. There are a lot of attendees that come from bigger companies now (particularly game studios), and it didn’t feel that way last year.

Automated Trading resources

Posted on .

One of the things that I’ve been doing sporadically over the last couple of years is dabbling in Automated Trading. Now when I say dabbling, I mean small fry. Mostly playing with backtesting and the occasional test with small amounts of real money.

It’s been interesting, and I’ve learned a lot (many of the ‘things not to do’).

The following is a collection of useful tools and learning resources.

Slightly simpler than the AREC stand, however still cool. Spent a lot of the time explaining and demoing the Matterport the attendees.

Places you should visit

Posted on .

I should probably be ashamed that my top thing to do in any city is find the nerd spots. Here are two of my favourite from my last trip to the US.

B&H Photo

B&H Photo in NY is probably one of the coolest stores in NY. They have this amazing conveyor system that makes them feel more like an Airport than a store.

Autodesk Gallery

Autodesk Gallery in San Francisco is another hidden gem. An amazing space that celebrates the massive variety of things that Autodesk software has been used to design and build.
