The month of September was excitement all around for Meta’s Connect 2023 as well as a lot of other events sprinkled throughout the month. Read on to see some of the highlights from not only the Connect event, but other happenings announced throughout the forums. MVP Connect Events Last week we got our MVPs together for a few events surrounding Connect and the launch of Quest 3. One of them we wrote about here, where our weekly Walkabout Mini Golf game turned into an FAQs session for the whole community. Another event that took place was during the actual day of Connect. The Community team and MVPs gathered to watch the Keynote through Bigscreen Beta. We were gathered amidst the camp-style theater to eat our virtual popcorn while our host @Ryanality live streamed the event through YouTube VR. It was a fun time with our MVP squad.
Also, while we’re on the topic of MVPs, we are growing the team! Back in April when we first launched, we initially started with four of our top forum veterans: @DaftnDirect, @Hiro_Protag0nist, @kojack and @nalex66. Since the program started, they have been hard at work getting your questions answered and discussing all things Quest and VR. Since they’ve done such great work, we’ve decided to open more spots to the community and have since recruited some additional folks that we feel have encompassed the qualities of a true MVP. Let’s all give it up for @007xSlayerx007, @baroquedub, @J40NYR, and @NathanSudo. If you see them around, make sure to say hello! More information is here if you are interested in joining the team.
