Yesterday we announced something that has been brewing behind the scenes for the last month: the Vancouver VR Community has officially merged with VANVR’s Meetup and Slack! As major advocates for collaboration, we’re excited to lead by example by working together, and playing by our strengths to bring VR to Vancouver on a grassroots, community-focused level. Have you taken our short survey yet? Be sure to let us know what you love about the community, so we can make sure we’re headed in the right direction!
Let’s take a look at what you’ve been cooking up in VR in Vancouver!
