You don't need us to tell you that VR is on fire right now. It's one of the fastest growing new technologies, and one that's been forecasted for decades.
We decided to make it a flagship track at this year's hackathon and also do a VR Jam in Reykjavik to help starting and experienced VR developers get the time, space and mentoring from experts to build something cool.
This is no PPT-filled marketing snoozefest. At Junction, we're all about building cool new things, and that's exactly what the VR Jam is meant for. If you build something cool enough, you get to the stage of Slush PLAY!
It's a VR jam.
Learn about VR, talk to experts who've built and shipped real VR products. Build cool things.
9AM on September 28 to
3PM on September 29, 2016.

Besides its astonishing nature, infamous volcanoes, worth-to-see glaciers, Iceland has become the cradle for VR development.
