Event Outline

VR Hub Tokyo is a community for startups, developers, creators and enthusiasts interested in creating and promoting new virtual and augmented reality as well as 360-degree immersion experiences, technologies and applications.

VR Hub Tokyo Meetup on September 7th will be our 3rd meetup on Unity. Learning development or new technology alone may get challenging very soon. This time, we would like to consolidate the power of VR developers and designers by enabling community learning and exchange for every skill level in Unity.

The event rules are simple and fun.

You can join as attendee or presenter.
As a presenter, you are welcome to introduce or teach 5-15 min topic of your choice related to Unity and VR/AR of any skill level. This can be anything you like from first steps in Unity to your favorite VR sdk function, simply introducing amazing Unity Store assets or showing project you are currently designing or developing. It is not required to be coding. If you would like to share your experience, please tell us your topic in advance.
* The topics will then be arranged in the order of difficulty from basics to more advanced (see below).
