About this event

For this exceptional talk and codelab, we will be welcoming Doug Sillars to our lovely stage!

He is a freelance mobile performance expert, having helped thousands of developers speed up their mobile apps and websites. A Google Developer Expert and the author of O’Reilly’s “High Performance Android Apps,” Doug regularly speaks at conferences, and blogs at He is currently working as a freelance digital nomad, traveling with his family in Europe.

The world of virtual reality allows us to build new 3D interactive spaces that we can fill with anything we want - like the art of the great Renaissance masters. More into Cubism? With a quick click - now the gallery is full of a completely different genre. With new AR features, we can actually build the gallery in our own space - and just as easily swap out the art - all in our browser!

In this talk, we’ll walk through the steps to build a virtual ARt gallery, with web technology available today, but also take a peek at the new WebXR technology that is coming to our browsers soon!

We will also take a nice break to enjoy some food and drinks courtesy of our generous sponsors!

NOTE: Don't forget your laptops and chargers if you want to take part in the Doug's codelab!

We can't wait to see you all at the event!
