Join us for Fitbit’s First Rooftop “App-y Hour” in SF!
However you count it, the last 328 days since enlisting Pebble's expertise (https://blog.getpebble.com/2016/12/07/fitbit/) and launching the Fitbit SDK (https://dev.fitbit.com/) in September has been time well spent. We’ve worked hard to launch an amazing developer experience (https://dev.fitbit.com/blog/2017-09-26-fitbit-sdk-preview-get-started/) for the new Fitbit OS (https://www.fitbit.com/fitbitos) platform, and will keep the momentum going with continued improvements and richer tools.
It’s only been a few weeks since Fitbit Studio (https://studio.fitbit.com/) went public, and our amazing developer community is already off to a great start creating clock faces and apps that our global community will love later this season. With everything up and running, it’s time to take this show on the road.
We’re excited to kick off the first Fitbit Developer “App-y Hour” (https://www.meetup.com/fitbit/events/244553381/) under the stars at Fitbit HQ. Join this Meetup group and RSVP using the button on this page today!
• Thursday, 9 November 2017 @ 6–9pm
• 215 Fremont St, 8th Floor Rooftop
• FREE Admission - All ages welcome (minors must be accompanied by a parent or guardian)
Get your creative juices flowing. The Fitbit Dev Team will be on hand to walk you through the developer platform, answer your questions, listen to your ideas, and share what’s next for the Fitbit OS and SDK down the road.
Eat, drink, and get hacky. While enjoying your fill of food and drinks on us, you’ll have hands-on hacking time with Fitbit Ionic watches on-site. Design a clock face, get started on an app, or just try to get as many steps in as you can!
Win big and get swagged. All attendees will be entered into raffles for multiple chances throughout the night to win your very own Ionic watch. If the odds aren’t in your favor during the drawings, you’ll still go home with a gift bag of exclusive Fitbit Dev swag!
Be ready for surprises. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
