Android Wear Hands-On Development

This month we're doing a special event on Android Wear, the new wearable/wristwatch technology from Google. Watch a 20 minute in-person presentation on the Android Wear SDK then code for 2 hours on your own project or collaborate with others. We're also giving away several vouchers for watches that can be redeemed once the hardware is released.

1. Sign-up for the Android Wear Developer Preview at  http://developer.android.com/wear/preview/signup.html It takes up to 24 hours to get approved. 

2. Bring a laptop with Android Studio and the Android Wear Developer Preview support library installed.

3. Bring an Android phone or tablet for testing your app

Agenda:

6:00pm - Android Wear Overview

    If anyone is looking for a quick API to integrate some real data into your Android Wear project, check out Numerous (numerousapp.com/api). Ironically, you'll need an iOS device to create an account but it's all REST API from there on out.

    And since you ask, yes, we are planning an Android version--as soon as we can find the right Android developer to work on it. If that sounds like you, contact me at [masked]! :-)

    If you were waiting on an approval email for the Android Wear Developer Program, the folks processing the approvals just got caught up. Let me know if you are still waiting for the email.

    Thanks,
    Daniel

    Hey everyone,
    I'd like to make a request for the venture I'm building. I'm looking to build a small team and looking for these talents interested in working in the IoT (Internet of Things) space on a Wearable Tech:

    - Embedded Hardware Engineer
    - Embedded Software Engineer
    - iOS & Android Mobile Developer
    - Industrial Design Artist
    - Mechanical Engineer

    If you are one of these pros and interested in creating something cool in a short amount of time from concept to market - let's connect & explore the opportunity! According to many analysts, Wearable Tech is the next Megatrend so get a jump on it early!

    Here is a sample Android Wear app I threw together real quick that I will go over on Thursday. You're free to use it to get started on your app for the demo if you'd like. Questions/Suggestions are always welcome. Thank you.

    Hey there! I've never done any coding for android devices at all but am really curious about it, will this event be open to novices as well?

      Hi Jie, Anyone interested in Android Wear development is welcome. The presentation and coding assumes you are familiar with Android development but that doesn't preclude you from coming.
