Talk 1 - WebVR: How to create virtual worlds with JavaScript, by Peter O'Shaughnessy

The era of Virtual Reality computing is about to begin. Analysts forecast that VR will become a $30 billion industry by 2020. It's also a lot of fun. Let's learn how to build virtual reality web applications for Samsung Gear VR and Google Cardboard, using the new WebVR API along with Mozilla's A-Frame and Three.js.

Talk 2 - Going Mobile with Ionic 2 by Alex Muramoto

Hybrid mobile app development is awesome, but has historically been a difficult way to build apps that truly look, feel, and perform like native. In this talk, we'll look at Ionic 2, the newest version of one of the most popular hybrid frameworks. It’s built on Angular 2, performs like native, integrates native device APIs, and provides a large set of customizable, natively-styled UI components out of the box. It's also 100% open source!
