Once you manage to get your hands on a HoloLens, one of the first steps to help understand the programming model is for you to port over an existing app that already works on the Windows 10 desktop. That both allows you to have a useful app of your own on the device, and learn the basics of app creation and deployment without the complexities of dealing with 3D space. This session will step through taking an existing UWP app and putting on HoloLens. Using the streaming video capability of the device, you'll be able to see the end result as it is running. You can then replicate that process at home using the HoloLens emulator.
