The sixth annual Oculus Connect conference will take place Sept. 25 and 26 at the San Jose McEnery Convention Center in San Jose, Calif.

Facebook acquired virtual reality company Oculus VR in March 2014, and it has continued to develop the VR platform, most recently shipping its two newest headsets last month: all-in-one VR gaming system Oculus Quest and new VR headset Oculus Rift S.

Facebook head of developer product marketing Desiree Motamedi Ward wrote in a blog post, “Over the past year, the VR developer ecosystem has built, tested and shipped groundbreaking VR games and applications, while OC6 will provide the platform for our community to learn, connect and succeed in 2019 and beyond. Keep an eye on this blog, as well as the Oculus Developer Facebook and Twitter channels. More information about registering for OC6, tech talks, a new website and other updates are coming soon. Be sure to save the date.”
