Over 10 billion devices which use Bluetooth were shipped in the technology’s first 10 years. But last year alone, a further 2.5 billion new Bluetooth devices materialised. 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.

Android developers have excellent Bluetooth Smart APIs at their disposal and “L” looks set to add even greater power and flexibility, with some great new features.

In this session you will learn about the fundamental concepts and architecture of Bluetooth Smart and how to create Android apps which exploit it. There will be slides. There will be code.
