Is your application stuck in the virtual world, no direct connections? Does your mobile application have no way of knowing if you are standing next to your bff? Do you find yourself pointing your phone at things hoping something will magically happen? Have you tried to walk your phone on a dog leash late at night? This Meetup will help solve the first 3 questions, the last one is just weird…
This Meetup will focus on one of the least publicized iOS 7 features, but arguably the most important for creating truly new types of mobile applications, iBeacon/BLE. We will start the session by exploring the new worlds opened up by this feature. Then we’ll roll up our sleeves and walk you through the coding required to build incredible iBeacon and BLE applications. We definitely ran into some surprises when we first started working with theses APIs. We will share the good and the bad of our experiences.
This is a must attend event if you are an iOS developer/designer. This also applies to curious Android developers that may want to implement the iBeacon protocol on a 4.3+ OS (free app idea). It will definitely change the way you view and plan for future mobile application development.
As always, this will be a supportive, fun and informative gathering for people passionate about mobile to meet and share ideas. We hope to see you there!
