Talk description:
Virtual Reality creates virtual spaces and experiences around you. Despite its in-demand status, most developers do not understand the basics of it as they don't have working knowledge of WebGL, which is the most popularelement to implement VR experiences on the web.

What if we could change that?

This talk will introduce Web Based Virtual Reality, which makes developing VR websites a cakewalk, for Web developers.

This will be a beginner to intermediate talk, where the audience will learn about the WebVR API and the A-Frame framework which allows you to develop VR experiences using HTML.

By the end of this session, the audience will understand how VR works in the browser, both mobile and desktop.
