To gain basic VR skills using A-Frame and related systems. This includes building basic visual effects for VR and basic animations. This will work for Android and iOS phones using small VR headsets.

You must have a laptop. For the last part we will use a Ubuntu VM.

We will start with web-browser VR – such as webxr-api-emulator from the Mozilla Development Foundation

You can do everything here on your own machine. We will use a basic Ubuntu VM for the animation topic.
