Gearing up for Google Glass Development

A session at Frontend Conference Zurich 2013

Thursday 29th August, 2013

2:00pm to 3:00pm (CET)

Glass raises many technical questions. Are Glass apps native apps or web
apps? Is Glass an augmented reality device? How can websites and apps
integrate with Google Glass? How can we emulate how content is served? Is
Glassware just a website or an app with a transparent background?

concept than a webapp or a native app. Using the cloud and a push and pull
mechanism we can update user’s content and integrate with its services from
a web server. This talk will introduce the Mirror API and the concepts
behind the development of Glassware or apps connected to Google Glass, as
well as about the first release of the device itself and a live demo of its

We'll also discuss the possibilities of the GDK for native development and
the Web Browser inside Google Glass.
