Do you want to get your hands dirty with development for VR? Now's your chance!
We are hosting a Hack-a-thon/Game Jam at Peoplespace to bring together designers, developers, makers, and educators for a weekend of VR development exploration.
The mission is simple: Break into teams and try to use VR to create educational experiences
Here is the proposed schedule for the weekend:
Sat Morning- Meet, brainstorm, and break into groups based on skills and experience.
Sat Afternoon- Work on prototypes in groups. (Possible side sessions for quick Unity tutorials for the uninitiated)
Sat Night- Keep working, tinkering, and iterating on prototypes. Around midnight, Peoplespace shuts down. If you are still working by then, we will kick you out! Go home and rest.
Sun Morning- Peoplespace opens at 8am. Coffee and donuts will help start the day.
Sun Day- Keep working on iterating designs/builds. Experienced VR developers will come around to advise and assist groups on finishing projects.
Sun Afternoon- Around 5 we will all get together to share our ideas/designs with each other and pitch to a panel of judges.
The winning team will get several prizes along with the opportunity to demo at the OrangeCountyVR Booth at the Immersion 2014 (http://summit.immersiveeducation.org/sponsors_exhibitors.html) expo June 6-7!
