Oculus Connect is a two-day conference for developers and creators that has the goal of creating some of the "best virtual reality experiences available". Oculus VR explains: "In the last two years, we've seen more virtual reality content built than in the last two decades, and that's a direct result of incredible work by the community. With virtual reality's momentum at an all-time high, this is a unique moment for the developer community to come together to take the virtual reality to the next level".

 

The two-day conference happens on September 19-20 at the Loews Hollywood Hotel in LA. There are going to be four big speakers at the event, with Oculus VR founder Palmer Luckey, id Software founder and now CTO of Oculus VR John Carmack, Oculus VR's CEO Brendan Iribe and Chief Scientist, ex-Valve employee Michael Abrash.

 

Oculus Connect will be the first chance that people have to look at the company's upcoming technology, with workshops and sessions that will have in-house Oculus engineers on-hand.
