    I thought I would share this here as well.

    When we get asked at conferences, what the best method is to get started, I recommend connecting with interesting groups like Academy of VR. Welcome ? Academy of VR

    It's a group of coders that go city to city providing all day sessions where you get to make a VR game, get a Google cardboard set and learn from the ground up. I like these guys because they are small, friendly and in a real classroom.

    My advice when learning VR is to just find somewhere local that is a real tangible space. This way you can also get access to hardware you may not have access to otherwise.

    Anyone else bump into any good learning groups or events?

    Signed up, maybe I can make it if/when they do Philly or New York.

    I joined the local VR Meetup group here, but 1) it only meets monthly and 2) it seems to only meet on days and times that I can't attend, lol.

    Yeah meetup groups are tough. We run our local one, but it raises several challenges

    VR Headsets like the Vive are not exactly portable
    VR is mostly indiegamers and indiedevs, which don't exactly like to go outside
    And VR folks are crazy busy right now

    What we do is we are leading the local VR meetup monthly. But our local gamedev meetup meets several times a week which helps. But definitely the VR meetups are time consuming
