Beginning this month we will be having a training call for contributors on behalf of WebVR Focus Group formed at Mozilla India Meetup 2016. This month’s call was super productive with focus on a set of goals to be achieved during the month of September.
We opened the discussion by introducing ourselves.
Topic: Discussion about various goals set at Mozilla India Meetup, 2016
Ram started the conversation by listing down and explaining various key points that are part of WebVR Focus Team goals for the entire year. He focused on getting more contributors on-board to teach and learn A-Frame through collaboration.
Srushtika talked about getting people involved using teaching materials and emphasized on importance of learning git to involve new contributors to WebVR and mozilla community in general.
Meanwhile Lavish, Chandan, Aswin, Md Shahbaz, Survesh and Shadab were putting in their suggestions and ideas to make the conversation as productive as possible.
Topic: Getting fellow contributors to start working on A-Frame and WebVR ecosystem
After that Ram took the helm to drive the discussion towards introducing A-Frame and WebVR using this awesome presentation he made for his session in Mozilla India Meetup, 2016.
Now It was my turn to introduce the fellow contributors to the world of A-Frame through some examples and A-Frame boilerplate. Everyone showed great enthusiasm towards learning A-Frame. We also discussed about how to get started with A-Frame by suggesting basic scene ideas.
Lavish, Ram and Chandan talked about encouraging beginners to solve bugs labeled easy across various A-Frame repositories and WebVR India Github repo.
Md Shahbaz Alam will be hosting an event at Jaipur National University, Jaipur, India with the agenda Introduction to WebVR soon. Cheers!
For now it is decided for everyone to create scenes on their own github repos, after sometime we’ll be merging them all in a central repo at WebVR India Organization on github.
Ram and I are working on a training curriculum for beginners. Initial draft has been prepared. We always welcome your thoughts, suggestions and comments.
BTW this month we are hosting a competition for everyone working on A-Frame. The objective is to create 5 scenes (themes must be different from one another) using A-Frame. 2 VR devices are up for grab for the ones who finish the objective. We’ll help you in every possible way. Feel free to contact us.
