A-Frame is a web framework for building virtual reality (VR) experiences. A-Frame is based on top of HTML, making it simple to get started. But A-Frame is not just a 3D scene graph or a markup language; the core is a powerful entity-component framework that provides a declarative, extensible, and composable structure to three.js.
Originally conceived within Mozilla and now maintained by the co-creators of A-Frame within Supermedium, A-Frame was developed to be an easy yet powerful way to develop VR content. As an independent open source project, A-Frame has grown to be one of the largest VR communities.
We'll have some VR headsets so you can try out what you are creating in a proper virtual environment.
As always, you can join our Game Dev room on Matrix (#gamedev:glasgow.social), the invite link is https://glasgow.social/matrix - do join if you get a chance, no matter what level of ability - I want to try and create a community of Glasgow based game developers established - the room currently has three developers who have games published on Steam, as well as a lot of beginners keen to learn.
The event is free and there is free tea and coffee (though there is a donation tin) - you are welcome to bring your own snacks and drinks too.
This is going to be a regular monthly event - we'll repeat the basics and people who have been before can resume where they left off or help the new people get started.
We'll be hosted by The Gamer Club which is in town, just off Bath Lane, see here for directions: https://www.thegamerclub.co.uk/gettinghere
Remember to bring a laptop to get the most out of this session.
