Topics will include: 

Dynamic Perspective, the new 3D SDK which leverages the Fire Phone's 6 front-facing cameras to produce a realistic depth parallax / perspective illusion. 

Firefly, a new feature which enables mobile users to instantly identify and purchase products they encounter in their daily lives.

Foundation Controls, the basic building blocks of Amazon Fire user interface development.

Doors open around 6pm. Talk will start around 7pm

    Hi Breanna! It will be fun tonight.
    I'm bringing a couple of devices you can play with, and we'll have plenty of time for Q&A on Fire phone and other Amazon devices and Appstore programs.

    I won't be able to make the event unfortunately but wanted to make a quick mention.

    I've been working on a concept called Orto ( that utilizes front-facing cameras to create an augmented reality effect. If you are interested in working with Dynamic Perspective on the Fire Phone, it could be fun to team up and make a demo!

    Send me a message if you're interested in chatting about it.
