    OMG – please bring this to Austin, we have plenty of interest here – you won’t be disappointed with the turnout (or the BBQ, music, weather, etc..)

    • As a Texas native, I can confirm the BBQ is incredible in the Austin area.

    Even the Undertakers son is doing this.

    Sucks that I decided to forgo my video game programming dream for a job in automotive.. If I could do it all over, I wouldn’t have blinked. I would have went straight into video game programing – it would have been the intellivision days, but I would have still been going strong now.. 🙁 – Oh well, I am still alive to enjoy the dream that every game lover back in the 80’s hoped for. VR! LOVING IT!

    • There’s absolutely no reason you can’t do it now if you set your mind to it – it’s never too late!

      Even if it’s just something you do in your spare time for fun, the first time you put on that headset in a world you’ve created is so immensely rewarding. 🙂

        I completely agree with Calmfixup.

        Similar story for me, loved VR since seeing it on Tommorows World in 1990, I decided to go down web development when I left college. 18 years later i’m a CTO so not so much development time anymore but still need something for passion and to reignite that passion for development and seeing your creation come to life.

        As soon as I got VR, I downloaded unity and got cracking. 4 Months later, I have setup a Limited Company, registered with HMRC, created a website and will be presenting my game to lots of industry professionals for 5 hours on Thursday 27th April. I’m currently waiting for Oculus to review and hopefully approve my game.

        It was a lots of learning , lots of late nights and long weekends while looking after 2 kids (wife helped a lot with this one:)), working full time.

        If you want it go get it! Good luck

  • Very limited to people who can travel easily to that area.
