At the end of March the XR Developer Network organized a brainstorm meeting during the Saxion Reality Check festival. The topic of the meeting was sharing of XR materials between developers working in education and research - what, why, how?
One of the outcomes was that amongst XR developers there clearly is a wish to be able to share different types of content related to XR projects. Or, put differently, more seems to be available and sought after than what is currently shared. This varies from pieces of code to complete applications, as well as insights into how a project approached technical challenges and development, and best practices.
But there are hurdles, including some practical ones, that need to be overcome. Below is a summary of the meeting outcome, which identifies the main aspects and challenges.
We will use this summary as input for the next Developer Network meeting on the topic of sharing XR materials, which is scheduled for 11 October at SURF Utrecht. See this event page for information on this meeting, including how to register.
