Are You Ready For #MACoCon? VR!

This year’s Maryland Association of Counties Conference will feature a Tech Expo and two special sessions focused on technology themes, including one on social media and virtual reality.

Headsets On: Get Ready for Virtual Reality and the Social Shake-Up

Jason Michael Perry, VP of Engineering at Mindgrub, will be speaking at MACo’s Summer Conference.

Virtual reality is one of the hottest and most mysterious types of tech and its tempting serum, poured over snowballing social media use, could turn the way that government interfaces with the public into one heck of a snow cone. VR applications for county governments already include tourism, economic development, and information science, with more to come.

MACo’s social media and virtual reality session will feature Jason Perry of Mindgrub. With over 16 years of experience as an engineer and consultant, Mindgrub’s Vice President of Engineering Jason Michael Perry keeps the train on time, oversees the web and mobile engineering teams, and provides technical direction. Jason is a veteran of multiple business sectors and has strong experience working on Drupal, Javascript, and mobile application development. Before joining Mindgrub Jason was a partner in a New Orleans based web consulting firm that did work for Michael Jackson, the City of New Orleans, and Dillard University.

A New Orleans native, Jason studied Marketing and Computer Science at University of New Orleans and is currently pursuing an Executive MBA from Villanova University.

Join this session to hear more about the opportunities presented by virtual reality and its integration with county services.
