How to get started?
HI everyone, I am Raghav , a sophomore, and I am looking to get started with AR/VR but don't know how and form where to start. I have worked with unity, basically importing things form asset store and scripts and merging them to create a vr scene. In AR I have no prior knowledge and looking to get started with it.
I need your help to get started and also want to engage in community as much as possible.
Hey there! My name is Bilawal Sidhu and I'm a VR Producer and Creative Technologist at Imaginfinity. We specialize in producing VR and Mixed Media content. Beyond reaching a wide audience on Facebook and YouTube, our work has been featured by the likes of Autodesk, SamsungVR, Vrideo and VeeR.tv.
The CG bug bit me early. As a tween, it was making short films with a boat load of VFX. At USC, my passion for CG/VFX dovetailed into Human-Computer Interaction, coming full circle into enterprise AR and VR while working at Deloitte Digital post-graduation.
Beyond making sweet content, I am deeply passionate about democratizing VR content creation to attract new and diverse voices into the formative period of what is arguably the final creative medium. Whether you have questions about business model implications of spatial computing (VR/MR/AR), or the nitty gritty on how to actually make this stuff, I'm all ears.
Ask me anything!

Hi everyone! I'm Trevor and I've been designing professionally for 4+ years. Here's a little bit about me:
Started off as a print designer: brochures, flyers, posters for charities and small businesses. Moved into spatial design and art direction when I graduated, was then hired as a consultant by LEGO to work with the .com redesign team—this was my first step into web design and the first time I'd encountered the UX process. Soon after that finished, I began working at 100 Shapes. In the last 3 years I have, in a nutshell, created brand identities, style + component guides and interfaces for enterprise and non-profit as well as smaller web products and apps. We're only until recently, diving into the world of VR/AR...MR—the uses in the industries we currently work with. There's a massive use-case for the technology and we're aiming to help enterprise rethink their current workspace by designing some high-level interaction guidelines and potential uses.
Moderator note: We are very excited to have Trevor do this for us - you should ask him about UI design, UX process, Graphi...
