I’ll be speaking at GGDevCon on the topic of integrating Glass with Environmental Sensors.
GGDevCon is an independent, two-day developer conference about Google Glass. This intensive technical conference for developers, software engineers and architects will train you how to master the Google Glass Development Kit and create outstanding Glassware. Learn about Live Cards, UI design and more. Get practical answers, roll up your sleeves, and learn how to program the wearable platform that is powering the next generation of wearable technology Oct. 27-28, 2014, in the San Francisco Bay Area.
In this class, the integration of environmental sensors and Google Glass will be presented. Glass presents an unique opportunity to examine the environment around the wearer in real time. Environmental Sensors are rapidly evolving in size power, and portability to the point where they are essentially wearable and always on. There are several sensors already on the market that can provide real-time streaming of temperature, humidity, atmospheric gas, spectra, etc. This class will provide and in-depth review of best practices and design patterns for integrating sensors with Glass. Also presented is a live demonstration of several sensor technologies as part of this session. All source code presented during this class will be available via public GitHub repository.
I recently held a training session at the Reno Collective as part of their Learn series. The session titled “Getting Started with App Development” is part of the From Zero to Mobile” series, is primarily centered around getting started with mobile app development from the ground up. I covered topics ranging from development platforms, cloud services, marketing, UX/design, making money, etc. Below you will find the slide deck from the class and a (brief!) list of online resources.
There is a know limitation on iOS that limits phone to watch communication to the foreground application (more details here). If your device is running httpebble then you will have to stop httpebble in order for Pebble Snap to connect to your Pebble Watch. Pebble Snap will automatically disconnect when switching away to another app and reconnect when opened again. To manually disconnect press the camera icon in the iOS app and it will turn red when disconnected. If the Pebble Snap watch app is open on the Pebble watch it will display and vibrate on connect/disconnect.
iOS 7 is not fully supported. A new version of Pebble Snap will be released after iOS 7 is released to the public by Apple.
As reported by a Pebble Snap user on iOS 7:
1) Install app,
2) Using Safari on your iOS device install watch face
3) CLOSE OUT THE APP completely (double press home button, swipe it closed)
4) Reboot the app
Voila, taking pictures now works smooth as butter on ios 7. The issue seems to be that once you launch the app, and then install the watch face, the app does not attempt to reset a connection to the pebble.
