Get a hands on approach to creating your own virtual worlds directly in the web browser. Learn how to make multiplayer 3D websites for virtual reality. During the course of this event beginners and advanced developers will have an online VR app that is hosted using blockchain technology. The best way to predict the future is to build it.
What is the Metaverse?
The metaverse is a persistent, globe-spanning virtual world in which billions of people shop, socialize, and relax. In short it is the future of the Internet and is lightyears beyond what a VPN for torrenting can do for you.
JanusVR combines the power of the web with the potential of virtual reality. Websites become immersive spaces linked by portals, where users can explore, collaborate and create content on a platform that builds upon common standards defining the internet. The future of the metaverse and the infrastructure it operates on will be built on the web.
Knowledge of basic web development and 3D modeling is recommended but not required.
