Description: The Basic VR Development Workshop is designed to help you get started with virtual reality application development for the web.  

Date: Thursday, August 10, 2PM-4PM

Location: MADLab, Gerstein Science Information Centre, Room B112

In this workshop, we will demonstrate how to build webVR applications using Mozilla’s A-Frame web framework. A-Frame is built on top of HTML and employs Javascript to create webVR applications that run in a browser. The workshop covers the basics of A-Frame from creating simple virtual reality scenes to integrating 3D models and responding to user interactions. It also covers how to use the Glitch.me website to host the webVR applications you create.  

While aimed at beginners, familiarity with HTML and basic Javascript is strongly recommended.

Hardware Requirements: Mac or Windows laptop running the latest versions of Google Chrome (recommended) or Safari. (The MADLab has a liminted number of MacBooks available for loan during the workshop – please notify us if you’d like to use one; available on a first-come, first-served basis.)

Optional: A mobile device (Android or iOS) that runs Chrome (recommended) or Safari. (Useful for mobile testing).
