When I read all the stories of this year's keynote speakers I was amazed. This year is full of talented people and I cannot be more excited. That Goro Fujita part was super cool too, he deserves it <3 .

What are your thoughts on this year's speakers?

    I noticed a link to the lineup on a post somewhere, but following the link didn't get me to the list. I'll have to go take another look now that's it's actually posted.

    I'm afraid I don't know much about the speakers apart from John Carmack so I'll probably just keep the evening free and sit in from the start, see how it goes.

    I'm personally looking forward to these

    How Developers and ISVs are Accelerating VR Adoption in the Enterprise
    I'm planning to have an Enterprise Prototype by end of year, so this will help provide some great additional insight.

    New World of Possibilities with Unreal and Oculus
    Unreal is my tool of choice for VR development; so another great personal interest here.

    Decisions, Decisions: PC VR or All-in-One
    This will be of great interest to anyone who still believes Oculus is abandoning the Rift or PCVR. The fact that this segment is being presented at this conference is evidence enough alone that Oculus is committed to Rift and PCVR. But I highly doubt it will stop the doom n gloom Rift posts from staying strong over the next year. lol

    The Future of Web in VR for Work and Play
    While I prefer Unreal for VR App Dev, I began with WebVR (e.g. A-Frame). I would love to see the latest advancements on this front.

    VR Storytelling: A Magical New Format
    I think this is great! Very few studios manage to capture the full potential of VR in their story-telling. Most studios simply take the same old approach to development and storytelling while relying on VR to function "by default" as an automatic out-of-box enhancement. I look forward to more attempts to use VR as a tool instead of thinking that the mere presence of VR is all it takes.

    John Carmack Unscripted
    Carmack always takes center stage. I'm glad he's taking this moment to dispel all the false claims that he no longer works for Facebook, Oculus, or VR.

    I’ll watch the keynote, the “special event” which is probably the Quest 2 reveal, and of course, Carmack.

    Web in VR is great!
    So it is WebXR now. "WebVR" is obsolete.
    Have you read on Mozilla reality blog? And Mozilla Firefox browser for mobiles (Go, etc...)
    They have social WebVR space. You could type in URL to load object inside VR room space from any server! That is just overwhelming!

    Have you seen "Lost Bear"?
    Very nice story with simple VR integration. Story is in 2D, but surrounding is in VR and it chages.

    Wow!
    :D
