Hello Everyone ,
This post is about a hackathon “ Moz Hack Day ” which was held in USIT for every student who was interested in A-Frame on 16 December 2017.
- Talking About VR, WebVR & A-Frame.
- Demo of basic A-Frame scenes.
- Basic concepts of A-Frame.
- Addons Concepts & implementation.
- Hands-On Addons development.
The event was started by the introduction speech, following with introduction of A-Frame and speaker also gave a look-up to attendees upon previously created ideas with A-Frame.
I, first of all, introduced myself and interacted with students by sharing my experience.I then started the event by introducing some basic stuff about WebVR like Mozilla and it’s mission of better and safe web, Mozilla’s initiative on making web more approachable, later also told them about MozActivate initiative and then, explained virtual reality, hardware compatible headsets and their technology, friction of VR ecosystem.
I also explained what is WebVR, and how amazing it’s development process and results could be by showing them some cool a-scenes stuff I developed before then, Explained A-Frame documentation and gave it’s website source which is (aframe.io), I requested attendees to have a view over A-Frame documentation but later explained it.
I then explained and showed them the basic example “ Hello World ” of A-Frame, which helped them to understand the basics of A-Frame development. Some Students raised there questions and it was good to see their doubts and curiosity to know better and understand deeply the concepts and those doubts were cleared.
I then explained about languages we need with A-Frame.I explained then about entity component system, about a-painter, then about registry, and at last about community.Then, we had our first refreshment break which included Tea, cold-drinks and wafers (according to attendees), then we started our development process.
After Tea break now, attendees started coding and creating their ideas and imaginations. Few of the students were good with A-Frame development and were creating really good stuff, which includes 360 image and 360 video scenes which were great. Now it was the time for Lunch break.
Now after lunch attendees again started coding what they were left before lunch and developers and students who were creating some good stuff were coding faster for completing their project, and it was good to see students collaborating which feels like a hackathon or an informative session.
As the session was just getting finished and there were just 30 minutes left, most of the developers had finished their development process and they were getting ready for submitting what they had created.
Now session concluded and I thanked all the attendees and developers who were coding and created great stuff.
Thanks for reading 😀 .
