Oxford's VR Crowd is a free VR meetup in Oxford. Come along and talk about VR with fans, users and creators of VR content.
• Introduction, welcome to newcomers and returning members
• Talks from our speakers
• Peter O'Shaughnessy – "Not Just Games: New & Unusual Uses for VR on the Web"
Peter is a developer advocate at Samsung Internet, Samsung's mobile web browser. Previously a web developer in various industries for longer than he cares to mention, nowadays he can generally be found tinkering with web APIs, creating demos and writing blog posts to share his excitement for the web with other developers. He's particularly interested in Progressive Web Apps, WebVR, Web Payments and Web Bluetooth. He spends the rest of his time coming up with puns, creating custom Slack emojis and finding creative ways to include llamas in as many places as possible.

James Valls is a Senior Producer at Rebellion. During his extensive career he has successfully managed projects on a wide range of platforms including PC, Xbox, Playstation, iOS, Android, online social platforms, websites and multimedia DVDs.
