Oculus VR has announced the celebration of Oculus Connect, a conference for developers on September 19 and 20, in Los Angeles and announces that attendees will be the first to know the upcoming Oculus technologies… could that be where they finally present the long-awaited CV1? And maybe more surprises, like control systems? In a little more than two months we will know.
We’re excited to announce Oculus Connect, a developer conference that brings together engineers, designers and creatives from around the world to share and collaborate for the sake of creating the best VR experiences possible.
In the last two years we’ve seen more VR content created than in the last two decades, and that’s a direct result of the incredible work of the community. With the momentum of virtual reality at an unprecedented level, this is a unique moment for the developer community to come together and take virtual reality to the next level.
Oculus Connect 2014 will take place from September 19 to 20 at the Loews Hollywood Hotel in Los Angeles, CA. Support requests will be available on the Oculus Connect website starting July 10, and RSVPs will go out the following week. We have booked a block of rooms at the Loews Hotel at a discount for registered guests.
Attendees will be the first to learn about upcoming Oculus technologies, with sessions and workshops led by Oculus engineers and industry pioneers. Developers at the event will also have the opportunity to receive design and engineering feedback directly from the Oculus team in hands-on labs.
Oculus Connect will also feature presentations by Brendan Iribe (CEO), Palmer Luckey (Founder), John Carmack (CTO) and Michael Abrash (Chief Scientific Officer) on Oculus, virtual reality and the future of the medium. The full list will be released as we get closer to the conference date.
You can get all the details on the official Oculus Connect website. Although the conference is open to the public, keep in mind that it is a developer-focused event. Attendance is limited, but we will be streaming the keynotes for developers from all over the world who can’t make it to the fair.
If you’re an Oculus developer interested in helping build the future, we’re looking forward to meeting you in person on September 19th!
