Vulkanised! Experience from game devs pioneering with Vulkan

Date: May 25, 2017
Location: Cambridge, UK
Venue: ARM3 Building

Event will be live streamed if you cannot make it.

Come hear game developers share their first-hand experience of pioneering development with Vulkan.

In this full-day of technical sessions we aim to provide 3D developers a wealth of best practice (and worst practice!) to help you learn how to get the most out of Vulkan in your engine, application or title.

We're delighted that ARM are hosting us for the day, and also inviting us to join them for a drink after at the Cambridge Beer Festival

Vulkan is an open standard graphics and compute API that provides high-efficiency, cross-platform access to modern GPUs (see

Prior Knowledge:

The sessions are aimed at 3D graphics developers who have hands-on experience of programming with APIs such as OpenGL, OpenGL ES, Direct3D or Metal.
