Wearables DevCon Recap, Pizza and Drinks w/ DC Droids @ Fathom Creative

Wearables are the next big thing.  If you are a developer, startup, entrepreneur, consumer or just curious, the advancements in this emerging tech are going to change your world and how you interact with it.  Wearables are arriving in all types of shapes, configurations and operating systems.  Are you ready to design and build for these new devices?

Just like the mobile and tablet gold rush, wearables are the next big thing.  The more you know about the technologies, software development toolkits (sdk), and hardware, the better prepared you will be to contribute as a developer, designer, startup and/or consumer.  This is a rare opportunity to hear from two seasoned entrepreneurs who have engaged in this emerging area of computing technology.


This event is being hosted by our partners DC Droids at Fathom Creative, Inc. in DC.

Ralph Sklarew and Barg Upender attended the recently concluded Wearables DevCon (http://www.wearablesdevcon.com/).  They will provide a recap on what they saw and learned at this conference. 

Wearable computing devices are the next Big Wave in technology. And the winning developers in the next decade are going to be the ones who take advantage of these new technologies EARLY and build the next generation of red-hot apps.

Agenda:

6.30pm - Arrival, Pizza, Drinks, Network

7.00pm - Welcome, Announcements

7.15pm - Presentation Starts

8.15pm - Q&A

8.30pm - Adjournment 

Barg is serial entrepreneur with passion for new technology that changes people's lives.  He founded and sold three software companies.  He was a mobile pioneer, that built hundreds of mobile applications.  Barg was chosen as one of the Top 100 Tech Titans in the DC-metro area by the Washingtonian magazine in 2009. Barg is 2008 alumni of the prestigious MindShare CEO Network, the leading entrepreneur network in the DC-metro area.  He received Masters in Electrical Engineering from Cornell University.

Ralph is an entrepreneur and techie with PhD in Physics and a dozen patents worldwide. He developed and marketed tablet forerunners in the '80s; remoted MEMS fabrication equipment in the '90s and worked on tek for seniors with the turn of the millennium. Most recently he's developed apps to teach kids to handwrite and keyboard all the while expecting these painfully slow output modes to quickly vanish. He bought the first Droid when it answered his oral question, "Who said 'I think therefore I am'?". And ever since he's tried to never remember something he could Google. 

Mobomo is sponsoring Pizza/Drinks for this event.

Fathom Creative, Inc is sponsoring the location for this Meetup. Here is information about parking around Fathom.  Parking meters and time limits stop at 6:30, there are a few spots that stop at 5.  There are two parking garages right on Thomas Circle, one in the Donavan Hotel and the other is right next to the CVS, both entrances are on 14th Street. Both garages are about two and a half blocks from the office – about a 5-minute walk. There is also a Whole Foods on P Street, a little closer (perhaps a good place to park if you need to some shopping prior or after the Meetup).  Fathom Creative is right on 14th Street and is a grey and white building with large glass windows in the front.  Press the buzzer next to the door on right hand side, as that goes upstairs to the gallery where the Meetup is held.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
