Opening Party in Degy World (Software Required)
12:00 PM, Monday 26 Oct 2020 PDT (2 hours)
The Opening and Closing Parties take place in the avatar-based, virtual world called Degy World. This virtual conference center looks and feels similar to Roblox, but was built for networking, events, and concerts. As soon as you log in, you hear birds chirping in the background, and as you get closer to the ocean, you can hear waves. Attendees customize their avatar’s clothes, gender, and hair and skin color to resemble themselves and use arrow keys to walk around. Participants will make their way to our reception room where they'll find couches and chairs for small meetings. The experience includes an easy way to identify others by name and spatial audio to converse with anyone in your immediate proximity--just like at a real conference reception!
