Tell Me More!

VR Austin is a community of VR developers and enthusiasts in the Central Texas area. Our quarterly networking events encourage the growth of ideas for developers and enthusiasts alike.

We talk, play, and share VR.

Whether you’re an aspiring developer, enthusiast, artist, programmer, designer, musician, filmmaker, dancer, architect, or all/none of the above— you can help contribute to the future of virtual reality with our community!

Code of Conduct

VR Austin is committed to maintaining a safe, diverse, and inclusive space for all VR enthusiasts! Everyone is welcome regardless of age, race, religion, gender, sexuality, or preferred HMD taste, and we protect our community members. Review our community guidelines here and continue to live by these words!

Why Austin?

The city is an exciting place! The world-class tech, gaming, art, and film scenes make Austin the best place to be for VR/AR development. With over 2,000 members and around 300 attendees per meet up event, our community is growing daily!

There are lots of great groups and gatherings in Austin, and we endeavor to list them all on our Community Calendar!

A VR Jam?

That’s right! In addition to our regular meetups, we run a once-a-year VR jam that gathers VR developers from all over the world to spend a weekend crafting — after all, building, collaborating, and experimenting are our bread and butter! It’s our biggest, most ambitious event of the year! More about the VR jam here!
