    One of these for XR or just VR would be fantastic also, had a lot of bugs with XR across the 2019 -2020 releases so far and even more bugs with Universal RP and built-in renderer.

    Very keen to hear what the plans are to stabilise/mitigate these bugs and also what the future plan for OpenXR support is within Unity as there doesn't seem to be any mention of that yet!

    Should interview candidates prepare notes/ideas about the topic? Or will we will be asked preprepared questions?

    i'm just curious if Unity plans to head back towards easy releasing across platforms, or if it is locked into further splintering. (ie, very complicated to build for diffrent VR platforms. Standard Assets removed 2years ago with some github offering for parts of it that isn't official yet, but also requires the new input system package - that also isn't done yet?)

    My workflow is to make VR things for all the available hardware, then spit out a WebGL version for students that can't afford the hardware. Unity doesn't seem interested in making this easier. seems to be getting endlessly harder.
    (don't see a chat topic that fits this exactly)

    I second that there should be one about XR.
    Also, what about Packages, and the future of AssetStore?

    No interview candidates do not need to prepare notes. They will be asked prepared questions.

    Is this closed? I tried to signup for Career & Business goals, but it said no dates are available for April.
    I would like a XR opportunity.

    It looks like all the available spots are booked. This time there are no plans for XR interview sessions but we do intend to run more of these interviews in the future.

    The interviews are meant for Unity to collect feedback from users, not for Q&A. However, users can ask questions at the end but the interviewer might not know the answer.

    Zoom is the video conferencing app that we use to conduct the interviews. It is possible to participate in the calls through your browser https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/115005666383-Show-a-Join-from-your-browser-Link.
