starts at 13h00, on Thursday June 19 2014
This is a half-day event to introduce you to the Android-Wearable platform and SDK. It’s a short afternoon Hackathon, so we’re not expecting full-fledged products to emerge, but rough prototypes, proof-of-concepts, slidedecks and UX mockups are the order of the day.
The big news is, we’ll be giving away 3 vouchers for Android Wear Devices to the best concepts, so you’ll get a chance to complete your idea and be first to market. Thanks to Google for sponsoring this event!
We’ve received a very handy preparation guide from the fine folks at Google, go follow the instructions and you should be in fine shape for the hackathon.
Of course, if you’re totally new to the platform, don’t forget to pre-install the following:
If you need help with your installation, barring any work-emergencies, Etienne or other Android-Montreal volunteers will be on site starting at 12h00. Please plan ahead. 🙂
