The virtual reality company that was recently acquired by Facebook has just released information about a developer-centric event they are organizing.
A unique moment in history is on the horizon for the developer community that is looking to tap into the power of the Oculus Rift movement. Engineers, designers, and creatives from all over the globe will come together to glimpse into the future of gaming, film, education, and more.
With VR interest at an all-time high, Oculus has gathered up enough resources to host its own developer event which it is calling Oculus Connect. The conference will be held September 19-20 at the Loews Hollywood Hotel in Los Angeles, California. Attendee applications will be available on the Oculus Connect website, starting on July 10th and attendance confirmations will go out the following week. There is no word on what the price for the event will be as of yet though.
The blog post that released the data states that the people who register will be the first to learn about upcoming Oculus technology, with sessions and workshops led by Oculus engineers and industry pioneers. Keynote speakers will include Brendan Iribe (CEO), Palmer Luckey (Founder), John Carmack (CTO) and Michael Abrash (Chief Scientist). The full session list will be announced as the time draws closer to the show. Developers at the event will also have opportunities to demo their content at designated showcase areas.
