What we're about

Meeting the right people is crucial. We look to match ideas with talent, hustlers with hackers and provide a great opportunity to meet other people in Vancouver working in the Tech Industry.

We are the official meetup for Launch Academy (http://www.launchacademy.ca), as well as community run events like Demo Camp.

Want to have an event without having to create an entire new Meetup group?
Want to host or promote an event to 100s of web, software, and design craftspeople in Vancouver?
Interested in cool cross-disciplinary events that cover startups, development, marketing, design, and more?

Join us in the meetup to get word about awesome events in Vancouver.

If you would like to propose an event please keep the following in mind:

The event must be focused around technology, entrepreneurship and/or design.
The event must be free or of a moderate cost.
The event's primary purpose is not self promotion/profit. Real value is added to the community.

If you have any suggestions on how to make this group better, send our leadership team an email.

See you at our next event!

CROSS-POST - #CubeLearn: How to Design VR/AR for Nontraditional Audiences

#CubeLearn is a Lunch & Learn event presented by the Cube in partnership with Lawson Lundell and industry experts in AR/VR/MR. Join us on Thursday, January 24th, from 12:00-1:00 pm. RSVP Here: https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/cubelearn-how-to-design-vrar-for-nontraditional-audiences-tickets-52921123505 The Cube has the mandate to help position Vancouver as a global excellence center for XR technology and is committed to helping current professionals in gaming, VFX, and tech, to sustainably develop their skills and knowledge into VR/AR/MR technologies. TOPIC OF THE MONTH How to Design VR/AR for Nontraditional Audiences You all know how hard it is to make someone feel at ease in VR. One has to deeply understand the user, their expectations and gently guide them through their initial experience. Designing for a single demographic is tough enough; making a good VR experience for two vastly different ones is at a different level. BCLC came to us with exactly this challenge; how do we make a VR gambling game that is innovative enough to attract Millenials to casinos while at the same time bringing traditional casino goers to VR. Join us as we explore the testing methods, design patterns and lessons used to create a thrilling, yet inviting, VR experience. SPEAKER Rafael Vazquez - Technical Game Designer at Archiact Rafael Vazquez is a technical game designer with a background in robotic engineering, a master's in digital media and over 8 years of experience working in video games. He's worked on a broad spectrum of interactive media projects, ranging from educational and medical games to PC and console games including, of course, VR. He is currently a senior game designer at Chance Technologies, a subsidiary of Archiact Interactive, focused on solving business problems through the research and exploration of new technology. FOOD / BEVERAGE: Pizza and drinks are available while quantities last. PLEASE RSVP noting if you’re bringing a +1 or 2. RSVP Here: https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/cubelearn-how-to-design-vrar-for-nontraditional-audiences-tickets-52921123505 A warm thank you to our sponsor, Lawson Lundell.
