Vizor is a platform for creating and sharing WebVR content, featuring realtime collaboration, visual programming, world editing and asset management. The creations can instantly be shared and work in all devices in a "responsive WebVR" fashion.
In this talk, we'll go through the tech stack, talk about how we recently swapped our own custom 3D engine to Three.js, and build a WebVR experience in Vizor from scratch.
Jaakko Manninen is a full-stack JS developer, CTO of Vizor.io, and has been working with WebVR since day one. Jaakko's previous work includes Rocket Pack, an HTML5 games engine that was acquired by Disney in 2011, and Splice Music, an in-browser digital audio workstation. Having worked at Nokia, iobox, Financial Times, Deutsche Bank, he has a solid background on all things internet.
