It's All About GoogleTV

As a follow up to our GoogleTV Session at the Google Offices last month, we will have Emir Hasanbegovic from Xtreme Labs dropping by to run an in-depth session on Developing for GoogleTV.

About the presenter

Emir Hasanbegovic is an Agile Engineer for Xtreme Labs, where he has been a key player in designing the core infrastructure that lines most of Xtreme Labs' Android and Google TV applications. These development tools are what allow for better end user experiences that people have come to expect from the work that Xtreme Labs produces. He recently launched the very successful Aljazeera Google TV application, staking his claim as Canada’s leading Google TV developer. He shines when working with Xtreme's clients by helping them leverage Mobile Technology to its full potential in an effective and innovative way.

Expertise: Android, Google TV, Java, UI/UX design, application infrastructure (design and implementation), HTML/CSS, JavaScript.

You can find out more about Emir at, and connect with him on Twitter at @phigammemir.


As always, we will also take some time to update on the latest news coming out of Google and take the time to chat about any big new apps or services coming out of the Android / Google space -

Hope to see you there!
