VR Hackathon Update: 360° and Growing
The Growing Community
With the success of the last event here in San Francisco and the growing interest by developers and designers of immersive technologies to have a weekend of creating and building, the VR Hackathon is expanding to new locations and age groups. There are events this year planned for San Francisco, Seattle, Cameroon, South Africa, and Albania. Check out the website for more details on upcoming events.
Also, the first VR Hackathon MINI for grade school students and young adults will be held in New Jersey this May. This event, initiated by tech savvy teachers, will give students in grades 5th-8th a full day of creating virtual and mixed reality content via tools like Minecraft, PlayingMondo, and Unity3D. I may get the chance to participate in this event as a guest so I am super excited to see what the next wave of VR creators will make.
That is all to share for now but what a start to an event that kicked off just six months ago.
