The latest generation of virtual reality hardware, along with emerging web standards such as WebVR and interactive 3D development tools like Unity have made VR accessible to a much wider audience of coders, artists, educators and explorers.
Brian Peiris, the author of RiftSketch, will be here to provide an introduction to live-coding using ThreeJS, RiftSketch and the Oculus Rift. If there is time, we will allow guests to try out the Oculus Rift for themselves.
Brian Peiris is a software developer with a passion for the web and more than 10 years of coding experience under his belt. By day, he helps build online education tech at Top Hat and by night, he hacks on things like 3D printers, home automation and Arduinos. More recently, he's been an enthusiast, evangelist and developer in the revitalized VR community.
