Developing in a Creative Cluster: AR/VR in Austin

AR/VR development is spread across the world, but many developers gravitate towards “Creative Clusters,” cities with a complementary array of technological and artistic industries working in the same space. Austin has become one of the top cities for AR/VR, with the second largest VR meet up in the nation, and hundreds of companies working in AR/VR. This panel features developers and business owners discussing their reasoning for setting up shop in Austin. How does VR fit into a Creative Cluster?
