It's our regular Lunch & Code event, and this month at a lovely new venue, uSwitch!
We have a talk from uve, who as well as being one of our members is the organiser of the Non Binary in Tech conference.
In addition to the talk there will be plenty of opportunity for you to work on your own projects, as well as trying out what you learn.
Talk: Making WebVR games
An introduction to virtual reality on the web and how you can get started making your own WebVR games.
About the speaker
uve is a Developer Advocate for Samsung Internet. They love hacking all types of tech together and encouraging inclusivity in the tech community. Their favourite colour is #b19cd9 and will put the :sparkles: emoji everywhere unless stopped.
If you don't have your own laptop: please come anyway--we can pair you up with someone who does have a laptop. We're all super friendly and often pair together.
If you're new to the group: we know it can be difficult to join a new social group, so we offer a Buddy Scheme to make it easier. We arrange to have one of our team meet you before the meetup starts, and to help introduce you to the group. For more info, see our Buddy Scheme page (https://github.com/qcldn/docs/blob/master/buddy.md).
If you'd rather just come and work on your own stuff, that's fine too. Bring your personal projects, your ideas, even your homework! This is a great opportunity to get feedback on your own projects.
If you're not sure what to work on but would like the chance to practice and develop your skills, we will have experts on hand to give you suggestions and help.
As well as coding, there will be plenty of time to meet other queer developers.
Lunch will be provided, courtesy of uSwitch.

The building is located in a large square. It can be a little difficult to find. The building has a large glass front and a large purple sign reading "ZPG".
Come to Copper Row via Lafone Street to have access to a ramp to the building. It's easy to miss but it definitely exists!
This will also negate the need to use stairs to get up to the entrance.
If you come from another direction (Copper Row via Horselydown Lane), there are a small set of stairs leading to the large glassy front door.
Although there is a small lift to get up the 8 or so stairs from the outside of the building to the front entrance, we cannot guarantee its use on the day.
We'll be in the Cafe area on the first floor. There are lifts inside the building to get up there, as well as a staircase.
