World-class WebVR with Google & Samsung at Ft. Mason on June 16th!

First Presentation

As Josh Carpenter tweeted soon after joining Google:

“VR is for everyone, & WebVR is going to help make it happen.”

Well renowned as lead browser VR guru at Mozilla where he worked on WebVR and A-Frame - each designed to expose the power of immersive VR to Web developers spread across the globe - Josh will be on deck to talk WebVR vision, Google, Daydream, etc. from one of the most authoritative perspectives possible about the pathway ahead.

Second Presentation

The world's most powerful Android phone company Samsung, whose core VR team includes Laszlo Gombos, Paul Kim, and Michael Blix, has just released their new web VR Browser: Samsung Internet for GearVR 1.0

Added functionality includes improved VR video support and mobile browser integration that lets you easily transition from a mobile experience into an immersive GearVR experience. Join us by the Bay and check this out!

    I just wanted to come to the 7pm Google/Samsung talk and Chris/Tony had said that talks are "free as always" but I'm unclear how to gain entry for just the talk. Is there a list, as there is no non-reception option at EventBrite?

    As Stephanie notes Autodesk has given us a great deal on Expo access at 4pm today via Eventbrite that includes Metaverse neighborhood and catered reception starting at 4pm for $20 - highly recommended! Yet for those coming from South Bay or after work only able to make Google / Samsung at 7pm, the talks are free as always. (to re-cap Host Tony P. June 3 msg)

    Just to be clear, do we need to pay the $20 to go to this meetup? Or is the meetup free, and that $20 is just to go to the expo? (I'm assuming this meetup is on-location at Forge DevCon?)

    June 1

    • Stephanie W.

      Hi Daniel, the entry to the Meetup, including the expo and catered happy hour, is $20. See you there!
