The last few months in 2023 saw partial divesting of various large companies, including Microsoft, in the Metaverse field. Hence it is more important than ever to look both both the "buzz" and the partial disillusionment and examine what is happening with the Metaverse.

We will have a look at the current state of Microsoft Mesh, initially announced in 2023 as a key Metaverse enabling technology.

Then we will cover questions such as:

  • What are other parts of Microsoft doing with the Metaverse?
  • Is the Industrial Metaverse still a thing?
  • What does it mean for application developers? Do I invest? Do I ignore?
  • What software platforms can I use to develop or integrate Metaverse applications?

You will learn:

  • About the state of the art of the Metaverse
  • What is Microsoft still doing with the Metaverse
  • How can you get started building Metaverse applications
