Friends Who Are Going
Event description


Join us June 17th - 18th, 2017 for our Intro Virtual Reality Development Workshop. Learn to build a VR experience from scratch using Unity with the help of Academy of VR's instructors. This course is beginner friendly, no previous experience is required.

By the end of the VR Development Workshop you will have built a VR game and be able to begin making VR content of your own in Unity. During the afterparty, you'll have time to get to know a community of VR devs and learn how to startup your own VR projects.

During the workshop, you will:

  • Have two full days of VR development training working directly with instructors from Academy of VR

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

  • Receive a free Google Cardboard for testing your project

  • Receive the full curriculum outlining the course in detail

  • Enjoy complementary refreshments and a healthy 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

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

You'll leave with:

  • A VR project you can show off and build upon

  • An 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 computer with Unity version 5 (free) installed (Mac's are acceptable)

  • A mouse with a scroll wheel is highly recommended (trust us, it makes a huge difference)
