What is the Pebble smartwatch meetup ?
This is a gathering to showcase projects from our amazing international developer community who love working on cool apps, exploring great connected hardware integrations, and sharing app development insight for the Pebble, Pebble Steel, Pebble Time and Pebble Time Round smartwatches. Meet other Pebble developers, enthusiasts, and partners to learn how to develop great apps and experiences for Pebble, the smartwach with the largest appstore on the planet.
Meetups are aimed at?
- Pretty much everyone. You too.
- Anyone interested in Pebble development including:
- Curious developers of all experience levels interested in seeing great examples of what Pebble can do and learn how to build their first Pebble app.
- Hardcore Pebble Developers interested in connecting with other great Pebble developers, get new development ideas from Pebble partners, and get one-on-one insight from the Pebble dev team to help answer questions that may not be covered in the forum.
- Wearable Tech Enthusiasts including developers, designers, entrepreneurs, or data scientists, interested in learning how to use the Pebble platform to leverage their startup ideas and meet great developers building experiences at the forefront of wearable tech.
- Developers who want to control the Internet of Things devices or hack other hardware platforms, control and get notifications from Internet of Things hardware and devices like Nest thermostat, Arduino, Mercedes, Phillips Hue, etc.
What topics meetups cover?
We meet to discuss Pebble trending apps and watchfaces, discuss different programming techniques and discuss how to spread the word about Pebble.
The meetups begin with one or more presentations for developers (or other advanced topics -depends on the meetup program- ) and continue with lightning talks and presentations by the Pebble community.
Do I need a Pebble to come (and have fun)?
Absolutely not! If you're not sure you want to buy a Pebble yet, there's good news! CloudPebble, the cloud-based development environment of choice, has a new emulator so you can try out developing Pebble apps without needing a device. What's more, we'll host raffles for free Pebbles! Bring your friends, because the more people come, the more we have to raffle off!
Pebble discounts and gifts!
We give away great Pebble swag and also have giveaway raffles like - free Pebble Steels for developers who deserve it! Members have also, the opportunity to get any of Pebble smartwatches for 25% off!
