Announcing Oculus Connect 2, Sept. 23-25 in Hollywood, CA
We’re excited to announce our second annual developer conference, Oculus Connect 2, where engineers, designers, and creatives from around the world come together to learn about the future of the Oculus platform and push virtual reality forward.
This year’s Connect will feature keynotes from Brendan Iribe, Michael Abrash, and John Carmack, plus everything developers need to know to launch on the Rift and Gear VR.
Oculus Connect 2 takes place Sept. 23-25, at the Loews Hollywood Hotel in Hollywood, CA. Applications to attend the event, along with a call for papers, will be available on the Oculus Connect website starting in June, and attendance confirmations will be sent out soon after.
John Carmack, Oculus CTO, speaking at Oculus Connect last year
At last year’s inaugural Connect, nearly 1,000 developers attended engineering and design sessions, showcased their projects, connected with fellow developers, and experienced the Crescent Bay prototype for the first time.
As a result of the community’s incredible work, virtual reality is poised to transform gaming, storytelling, film, communication, and much more. We look forward to seeing you there!
