Melville, NY (PRWEB) October 15, 2013
BZ Media LLC today announced Wearables DevCon™, a technical conference and expo for software developers, builders and designers of wearable computing devices.
The three-day conference will take place in Burlingame, CA, March 5-7, 2014. It begins with one day of intensive workshops, followed by two days of more than 30 technical classes. The conference will include a tabletop exhibit area for companies selling products and services for Wearable device builders and app developers. More than 300 app developers, software engineers and product designers are projected to attend Wearables DevCon (http://www.WearablesDevCon.com).
Juniper Research expects nearly 15 million wearable smart devices (including glasses, health and fitness monitors, and other devices) to be sold in 2013, amounting to $800 million, and nearly 70 million to be sold by 2017.
Wearables DevCon attendees will get practical answers as they roll up their sleeves and learn how to program the hardware and software behind the coming generation of wearable technology. Classes and tutorials will focus on core hardware technology and coding topics, as well as how to develop apps for the next wave of computing devices like Google Glass, FitBit, Pebble, the SmartWatch 2, Jawbone, and the Galaxy Gear SmartWatch and other leading wearable computer products.
Ted Bahr, President of BZ Media and Conference Director of Wearables DevCon, said, “Wearable computing devices are the next Big Wave in technology. The winning developers in this market are going to be the ones who take advantage of these new technologies EARLY and build the next generation of red-hot apps. If you are designing, building, or developing applications for the upcoming wearables revolution, you need to come to Wearables DevCon.”
The conference is owned, produced and managed by BZ Media LLC, which publishes SD Times, the magazine for the software development industry.
