Mr. Schneider is the Executive Director of The International Future Computing Association (http://www.tifca.com). TIFCA is a network of member companies and institutions that each play a part in what are, and will be, the ultimate tools and experiences that impact our daily lives using computer technology and media.  Its mission is to lay down the groundwork and enhance the viability of enabling what’s next.  We achieve this through influential membership meetings, stakeholder education, market-building events, special initiatives, and more.

Computing is heading towards an era of any place, any time, and any device user experiences that are delivered through write-once reach-many content and applications across all platforms.  The Client-to-Cloud Revolution is the journey to this era.

TIFCA is enabling this journey through the future computing pillars of compute performance and platforms, immersive technology, innovative content and applications, and their related ecosystem, infrastructure, and standards thereof.

TIFCA's flagship conference is the International Future Computing Summit which was founded in 2014 under a different brand name and has been held annually ever since.

Mr. Schneider is also the founder of Meant to be Seen (mtbs3D.com).  MTBS was the launch point of the Oculus Rift and marks the spot where Oculus founders John Carmack and Palmer Luckey first met.  MTBS is also the home of the free open source Vireio Perception VR drivers and the GameGradeVR quality assurance mechanism.
