Developing for Android Wear

  • July 8, 2014 · 6:00 PM

Come join us to meet other developers who work with and/or are interested in Google technologies! 

We welcome people of all backgrounds, including non-developers, to join us but kindly ask those who attend to refrain from discussions regarding recruiting, startup pitches, technical co-founders and other business-related issues until after the meeting has adjourned. 

At July's meeting, Justin Munger will be speaking about developing for Android Wear, Google's newest wearable technology. Wearable devices are used very differently from phones and tablets, focusing on quick interactions rather than immersive experiences. 

Justin will be discussing the new design paradigms of Suggest and Demand that foster quick interactions and what those mean to developers who are creating wearable experiences. He'll talk about the wearable UI concepts such as Cards, Stacks, and Pages and how to implement them for Android Wear. Justin will also discuss how to sync data between wearables and phones/tablets for more complex applications using Google Play Services.  

Agenda: 

6:00 - 6:30: Socializing, networking and pizza 

6:30 - 6:45: Announcements

6:45 - 7:45: Developing for Android Wear

7:45 - 8:30: General discussion

We would like to thank 1871 and Google for their gracious support in providing the meeting venue for our group!

Please RSVP by Tuesday, July 8th at 5:00 PM if you are planning on attending. Hope to see you all there!

    Great presentation and in depth code explanations complete with a github repo to take home! Awesome to play with the devices and to see live code examples running with the emulators out of android studio

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.
