Sky Nite on Democratizing and Accelerating VR Knowledge #VirtualReality
Incredibly interesting and inspiring article from UploadVR:
Hi, my name is Sky Nite and I’m the head of education at UploadVR. I thought I’d share some of what I’ve learned over the past two years, and hopefully inspire you to save the world.
Just so you know where I’m coming from, I started my VR career after unofficially graduating from college and publishing a book called Virtual Reality Insider. I then dove into building a VR content company, focusing on an initial game where you used psychic powers to fight the International Security Agency.The very first thing I did was spend a month teaching myself the basics of C#, Unity, and 3D modeling so that I’d understand VR dev tools. I spent 7 months after that building a narrative framework, prototyping DK2 experiences with the help of developers, and learning from the VR community in the Bay Area. I then dove into Unity development full-time, becoming confident enough after 3 months to start working on a 10-minute release pilot.
