Women Hacking Glass! Get your hands on Google Glass or share latest glass hack!

  • May 14, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Are you interested in learning how to make apps for Google Glass? Don't have the access to the hardware?

Come out and meet with other Glass Hacking gals to experiment with Android Studio, creating simple Glassware, using the Mirror API, and trying out your hacks.

This month we're going to focus on getting everyone's GDK development environment set up. After that we'll discuss what Android topics you need to know to be productive on Glass.

This event focused on helping nurture the female hacker community. Show your support!

For those of you who are already a little familiar with developing, you can get a head start here with John's awesome screencasts re: installing the GDK :

I also encourage those not familiar with IDE's to try it out. 

There are, and will be, plenty of opportunities for mixed gender hacking/tech sessions/meetups of all kinds but for this particular once-a-month event has a focus on women's experiences, ideas, learning, questions, and supporting each others' projects and development with Glass. This group, and these monthly events, are a launching point for great things and women who attend get to be the center of attention. We kindly encourage male allies to support this space and if interested in hacking on Glass with the many women involved in this community, organize other gatherings between WHG occurrences.

    I made a demo sample project that we can use to build off of:

    It features a low frequency live card, and no documentation (yet)! This is the base for for my new Heart Rate Monitor Glassware, though this demo displays random data. It's also gradle only (sorry Eclipse users =/ ).

      FYI - I updated the gradle version to use a custom voice command.
