Proposed Talks

Metaverse and Me

Submitted by Fergus Kidd

Talk Abstract:

Join us for a brief explanation and tour of the metaverse today, and a discussion of what might come in the future, and the skills you'll need. We'll dive into what skills you can learn and build on today that will serve you well in the metaverse of tomorrow. Especially as we move from centralised metaverses that we see today, developers will have more power and freedoms to build solutions that work for users, and adapt to this new space just as developers before us adapted to internet and cloud based solutions. We'll cover open source tools and free resources that you can use to get started, game engines and their connections to the metaverse, why we can't achieve anything without AI, and as some of the decentralised technologies touted to revolutionise this space.
