Event description


Join us May 6th, 2017 for our Intro Virtual Reality Development Workshop in partnership with the Consumer Virtual Reality (CVR) Conference. Learn to build a VR game from scratch using Unity with the help of Academy of VR's instructors. No previous experience required.

By the end of the VR Development Workshop you will have built a VR submarine piloting game and be able to begin extending your knowledge to making VR content of your own. During the afterparty you'll have time to relax, get to know a community of VR devs and learn how to startup your own VR projects. Want to learn more? Checkout our HTC Vive Development Course on May 7th.

During the workshop, you will:

  • Have a full day of VR development training with professional instructors from Academy of VR

  • Build a submarine piloting VR game in Unity that you can show on any smartphone

  • Receive a free Google Cardboard for testing your VR project

  • Receive all project files and a full course curriculum outlining the course modules in detail

  • Enjoy complementary coffee and a catered dinner

  • Play nearly every game on the Vive & Oculus Rift during downtime (seriously, we have almost everything!)

You'll learn to:

  • Build a VR game from scratch in Unity

  • Utilize the Google VR tools and SDK

  • Use Unity, the leading 3D engine, to create VR apps of your own

You'll leave with:

  • A VR project you can show off and build upon

  • A stronger understanding of how to use Unity to create your own VR projects

  • A network of friends and colleagues who are passionate about VR

Course Requirements:

  • A laptop or computer with Unity version 5 (free) installed (Mac's are acceptable)
