Event description

Description

Are you interested in learning about, exploring and creating VR and AR applications?

Join us for a special VR/AR focused Hackathon, produced by the AT&T Developer Program. Hangout with us as we hack and build VR/AR apps and projects, get fed, compete for prizes across different categories and most importantly: meet new people and scout for teammates to work on new or current projects. We will have experts from AT&T and the local community onsite to assist with your development.

You Bring...

Your laptop, skills & ideas and any VR/AR hardware you want to use. Come with a collaborative, team-focused mindset and/or team-up in advance on Twitter/Facebook/Google+ with #atthack. Whether you are a developer, designer, project manager, or just interested in tech, you are invited to attend this event. Every group needs a good balance of talent and your skills are needed!

We Supply...

Quick presentations and code samples that help kick start your hacking, food to keep you going, and caffeine to keep you awake. We will have technical mentors to assist you in building faster, smarter, and with new tools. We will also have loaner hardware on-site for you to use in your solutions.
