Devs, are you looking forward to building apps with Kinect for Windows v2? In this Jump Start, explore the brand new beta Software Development Kit with experts from the Kinect engineering team, and see how Kinect v2 enables speech, gesture, and human understanding in applications and experiences.

Learn about the new APIs and app model, and see fascinating demos and samples (plus source code) for both desktop and Windows Store apps. Get the details on Kinect Fusion (real-time 3D modeling), Face Tracking, and Visual Gesture Builder. Discover the new sensor technology, natural user interface (NUI), accessibility potential, and practical applications.

Even if you don't have a Kinect device, you won't want to miss this entertaining event. The instructors even show you how you can start building an app without a sensor.
