NFC Programming Session

  • Jul 17, 2012 · 6:30 PM
  • F5 Networks

Hi Folks -

I'm delighted to introduce Bob Whelan, co-founder of smartWhere, who will be presenting on how to use NFC technology that a growing number of you have built into your phones. This is a pretty neat technology that's just starting to creep into the mainstream, which gives some pretty unique opportunities. New fields challenges, and all that.

Here is the blurb for the event:

*NFC Workshop for Mobile Game Developers

This is a one hour introduction to techniques for leveraging NFC in mobile game development. We will discuss NFC as a method to increase game installations and enhance gameplay, as well as opportunities in cross merchandising and viral marketing. Imagine a tag which becomes more valuable the more you share it with your friends.

In the workshop will encode NFC tags and build a simple Android project that demonstrates several of these concepts. Attendees will leave with code examples and tags for their own development.

[Attendees are encouraged to bring their own Android NFC enabled phone. We will develop for Android in Eclipse using Android SDK 14+. ]

    Hello everyone, here is a link to our blog that contains a youtube video and the code for writing content to an NFC tag. This is just the first of a couple videos that we are putting together. If you would like to see the others subscribe to our youtube channel so that you can see them as soon as we have uploaded them!

    Thanks again, Rob! Not to hijack away from the dev side, but a few people were asking for some interesting NFC Apps. One is FareBot, that can read your ORCA bus card. The other I like is NFC ReTAG: Take any NFC - keycard, old credit card, and reuse the ID tag to trigger something on your device.

    Great event. Developers are still learning NFC. That helps me to know how to support them as a member of the AT&T Developer Program. I don't think they know our program could be a resource for them either. Can you brainstrom with me your thoughts about this? Hsuan-hua Chang [masked]
