The virtual reality wave is coming! Build your first VR game for Google Cardboard and begin creating VR experiences with our Introductory VR Developer Workshop.
Learn to develop games for VR using Unity and accelerate your skills with our full-day introductory course hosted in UofC's ICT Building Room 121 (856 Campus Place NW). No development experience required and all participants receive a Google Cardboard headset!
By the end of the VR Developer Workshop you will have built a VR submarine piloting game on Google Cardboard and be able to begin extending your knowledge to making VR content of your own. This full-day workshop is by far the quickest way to begin learning VR development. During the afterparty participants will have an opportunity to network, try HTC Vive demo's and speak with the instructors from Academy of VR to answer any questions you may have. We're looking forward to seeing what you create!

A full day of VR developer training
A submarine piloting VR game that you create and can show on any android phone
Networking time and HTC Vive demo's with VR developers and instructors during the afterparty
