    Thanks for the presentation. Does anyone know if it's possible to get a smartwatch for a discount as a developer? They aren't too pricey...but still :)

    I've been using public transportation the last 2 years. Might miss the last bus to Palo Alto. Any kind soul willing to give me a ride back to Palo Alto Train Station? Many thanks if you can :)

    September 3, 2014

    • Wayne P.

      It is definitely in QD3 at the address above. There are lots of people here now.

    The Android Wear SDK is implemented using Java, and the APIs are very similar to programming for Android phones and tablets. So having some Android experience is very helpful. It is not possible to run Javascript or WebViews on Android Wear at this time.

    • Ryan M.

      You know, Wayne, somebody is going to challenge that assertion and build a Javascript "interpreter" for Android Wear.

      Yes, I want my WebView T-shirt!

    September 3, 2014

  • Chuck H.

    Hopefully not a silly question - what do we need to 'bring' to this event? Just our presence?

    September 3, 2014

    • Kevin N.

      Just bring yourself

      Tom, I have worked on the similar project related to food centralizing database but as software tester, analyst and UAT . Let me know if I can be of any help. As no product is implemented successfully without going through testing ..

    I am also interested in javascript and other web technologies that can be used in wear

  • Jerry K.

    I am curious to see how much of the DDK we have to know. Also, if we have to write in C++/C

    August 20, 2014

  • Jorge C.
