Last year ViewNaija a VR application I created, was selected as one of 100 finalists for Oculus Launch Pad 2019. I was invited to attend a 3 day VR boot camp hosted by Facebook to encourage diversity in virtual reality. We learned how to make VR accessible to all and some techniques in optimization, design and implementation of virtual reality. At the end of the 3 days we were invited to the Oculus Connect 6 and got to see Mark Zuckerberg present on stage! It seemed quite surreal to see so many VR enthusiasts in one place. I had never really met anyone who was more into VR than me before this point and have really gone on to expand my network with some amazing people. If you are interested in virtual reality I recommend applying for Launch Pad. If your app is selected you can even qualify for a grant to further develop your application.
