In recent years, the virtual reality space has gained a welcome reputation by promoting a better representation balance in relation to the gender compared to the general tech industry. Women like Nonny de la Peña and many others are leading the charges. In December, Microsoft will host the women in AI & Mixed Reality Hackathon at the Microsoft Reactor in San Francisco, directly across from the Moscone Center, the scene of numerous tech events that cover the entire history of Silicon Valley.
In comparison to this, Microsoft did not consider balanced territory (at least a surface) balanced were of importance.
The free three-day event enables developers and creatives to network and meet with Microsoft engineers and designers who serve as mentors during the event. HoloLens and Kinect, inventors, and Microsoft Technical Fellow, Alex Kipman (a member of this year's NR30), will give a special address.
