Gábor Paller runs the popular 'My Life with Android' blog and has reviewed a number of Android books.
Bluetooth is going through what has been described as "quiet revolution", with massive and increasing levels of adoption driven by the release of the latest version of Bluetooth called "Bluetooth Smart".
Bluetooth Smart enables some exciting and very current technology trends such as IoT (Internet of Things), Wearable Technology and Beacons.
In this session you will learn about the fundamental concepts and architecture of Bluetooth Smart and how to create Android apps and custom devices which exploit it. There will be slides. There will be code :-)
