Event description

Description

Celebrate global Virtual Reality Day by attending this local event near you. Learn and experience from different VR/AR demonstrations. Become educated about virtual and augmented reality. Have your first virtual reality experience. Ask questions. Meet the local VR/AR community.


This year for Virtual Reality Day, Shockoe plans to host a Game Jam! For anyone who isn't familiar, a game jam is a hackathon for video games. It is a gathering of people for the purpose of planning, designing, and creating one or more games within a short span of time, usually ranging between 24 and 72 hours, and some even longer.

Shockoe will host the jam at our Scott's Addition location for the weekend, but attendees can work remotely if preferred.

Whether you're a developer and who's always wanted to develop a video game or an artist who can practice color theory in the video game, you'll be a great value to any team!

Specifics:

  • 6:00 PM Friday- Game Jam kick off
  • 10:00 AM Saturday- Shockoe to host hands-on training in Oculus Quest development
  • 6:00 PM Sunday- Closing presentation of games

All skill-levels and talents are welcome, no prior game experience required. Please note that games don’t have to be VR, so all game ideas are welcome.

BONUS: We’ll be sharing the event live in 360º on Saturday with over 50 other cities around the world for VR Day.

We hope you'll join in on the fun!
