Details

Presented by Peter O'Shaughnessy. Consumer-ready Virtual Reality is now coming up fast, with Oculus Rift CV1, Samsung Gear VR and Sony's Project Morpheus all on the horizon. Google have also jumped in with Google Cardboard. Us Web developers won't be left out; Google and Mozilla are working on bringing VR to the Web browser and we can already build Virtual Reality demos using WebGL and CSS. Let's dive in, get ahead of the curve and have some fun with Virtual Reality web apps.

HTML5-based presentation with Oculus Rift and Google Cardboard demos. Example code will use Three.js.

Who should attend:

Front-end web developers. No experience of Virtual Reality, WebGL or 3D programming is necessary.
