About this event

Virtual Reality is everywhere and certainly where the world is headed. This technology can be seen in gps based apps, interactive model experiences, and gaming. It’s certainly a big deal. Now there is a new framework for web based virtual reality apps called React VR. React VR is a JavaScript framework developed by Oculus, a division of Facebook. This framework takes influence from React to allow developers a declarative model to write VR apps. It is currently designed to incorporate 360 degree video content with 2D user interfaces.

Jennifer Ponder will give an overview of React VR's key facts, information on dependencies and the modular components one uses to build React VR programs. Then, Jenner will show an example of what the React VR CLI looks like, which allows developers to set up the scaffolding for their applications.
