The Khronos Group is holding a series of sessions today in San Francisco. If your are at GDC, take a break and a 5 minute walk over to Green Space to see one of the several sessions Khronos will be hosting. Start the day off with Jon Peddie Research at 8:30AM PT. After a short break there will be 3 back-to-back sessions: WebGL+glTF at noon, Khronos Chapters lunch at 1PM and Vulkan at 2PM. Ending the day off will be a large Khronos Social from 7PM-9:30PM. All the details you need are on the Khronos event page. Unable to attend? No worries, Khronos has you covered with a Livestream of both the WebGL + glTF session and the Vulkan session. We’re expecting a lot of people today and space is limited. Please be sure to register for one of the few remaining spots if you haven’t done so already.
