Let's Fall Forward with a Three.js demo bash. No other agenda, just show and tell. The only requirement is an app or demo built with Three.js. That, and Don Olmstead is NOT allowed to throw vegetables. :-)

Confirmed speakers so far:

Tony Parisi, author, WebGL Up and Running (O'Reilly) - Three.js examples from my book

Theo Armour, Jaanga, Big Data

Kaustav deBiswas and Nitin Rao, Sunglass, Collaborative 3D Content Creation

Evan Neumann, Orbiting Eden

Orbiting is a physically accurate space simulator accessible directly through your browser with no additional plug-ins required. You can use Orbiting Eden to learn how to fly scientifically accurate spaceships and learn about orbital mechanics, orbital dynamics and the New Space economy.

Raimo Tuisku, Early-stage multiplayer car-driving game

Dave Arendash/Tony Parisi, 3DS Max -> Three.js Exporter

Brandon Liu, Three.JS + OpenStreetMaps

    Hi Everybody

    My new $249 Chromebook arrived today. Runs WebGL and Three.js just fine. See

    I am beginning to get code up elsewhere on jaanga - see the Brain of Richard app for example - and there's a lot more on the way...

    Come to find out how Three.js as implemented by Orbiting Eden is helping to simplify command and control of satellites.

  • Tony P.

    Call for presenters: hi all, I want to make it clear that anyone and everyone can come present their Three.js work at this Meetup. So far my confirmed speakers are me (showing off my O'Reilly book samples), Theo Armour (with a Datavis upgrade that will blow your mind), and the folks from The more the merrier! Let me know in advance if you can, otherwise feel free to show up and demo on the spot.

    Hi all,

    Glorious GAFFTA, the Gray Area Foundation for the Arts, has generously agreed to host the next Meetup. Three.jsfest ties in nicely with GAFFTA's programs - they are teaching a Three.js course that very week!

    Due to GAFFTA's scheduling restrictions we have broken with tradition and moved the meeting up a day to *Wednesday Sep 12th.* Hope you can still make it.

    August 21, 2012

  • Tony P.

    Paging Jake L - Jake I've tried to message you a couple of times. Are you still offering for GAFFTA to host Three.jsfest at the new space? Let me know ASAP. Otherwise if anyone else has suggestions please let me or the group know soon. Thanks

    August 19, 2012

  • Tony P.

    Hey all I moved the date up to 9/13 per a few presenters' requests. Hope everyone can still make it.

    August 15, 2012

  • Tony P.

    FYI I think we're going to move the date up to 9/13. Stay tuned.
