FREE EVENT! Google has been in the press a lot in the past few days since announcing Android Wear, their upcoming line of Android branded smart watches. Wearables are the next big frontier for smart technology. And on March 18, 2014, Google announced its part in it — Android Wear. As the name implies, Android Wear is an Android-based initiative, using Google's mobile operating system and a dedicated software development kit to kick-start the wearables space.

There is sure to be more news about Android Wear at the Google I/O conference in June, but why wait? We've installed the Android Wear preview SDK and have already built some sample apps which use it. Come and join us and learn more about this new Google technology. We will cover the following:
• Introducing Android Wear

• Why it is Cool?

• Installing the Preview SDK

• Programming Android Wear

• Send Notifications

• Accepting input from the watch

• Integrating with Google Now

• Summary and Questions FREE food and refreshments will be served!

      Hello Ali. Like I said above, we will probably run this again when the official release of the Android Wear SDK is released.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
