Speed Networking

CVR Developer Workshops

Content developers meet content buyers for three-minute pitch sessions, done in a speed dating setting.  Hosted by the Vancouver Economic Commission.

Friday, May 5 (Industry Day)
4:30PM — 5:30PM
Exhibit Hall A

The complexity and rapid changes to the world of Virtual Reality challenges developers to constantly learn new approaches to creating VR experiences. The vision of the CVR Developer Workshops is founded in the philosophy that we are all teachers and learners; that continuing to support a community of VR practitioners where knowledge can be shared will benefit everyone. Various levels of expertise in different aspects of VR production will be represented, with a focus on teaching workflow on VR development projects that solved specific problems or used specific tools to support a VR project that has either been made public or is still in development. 
Hosted by the Centre for Digital Media.
