2017 Developer Summit Day 1 Recap: Virtual Reality makes a splash with amazing demos and a fascinating Futurecast featuring Nonny de la Peña

The first day of the AT&T Developer Summit offered attendees a chance to try out the demos provided by the VR/AR Challenge finalists, an opportunity to score for some swag, and a welcome party that was standing room only. We had another memorable Futurecast featuring a conversation between Andrew Keen and the godmother of VR, Nonny de la Peña, who is using VR to transform the way we experience news stories.
