Our third event will focus on the process of designing and building apps for the Apple Watch. Industry experts will share their experiences in designing for a device that does not yet exist (it does now, but not when they designed for it!).

The Apple Watch is an extraordinarily small and personal device. It is designed to participate in nearly every moment of your day, but almost never directly interact with anyone else. It knows when you’re wearing it. You can talk to it. You can poke it — and it can poke back.— The Verge

There are many questions that this Meetup is trying to tackle, for instance — how does one test for a device that’s not already available, what are the constraints in regards to app size, how do we implement creative solutions but still follow platform guidelines.
