About Me

Hello, I’m Alex and welcome to my Android Wear journey.

I’m a software developer with over 10 years experience developing handheld devices in the telecommunication industry. I’ve always been a fan of wearable technology. As a matter of fact, James Bond was my favorite movie character. I would excitingly stare at the movie screen wondering how I can get my hands on these remarkable wearable devices he uses to conquer the villains. Unfortunately, I quickly realized that the only place you can get these devices were in my dreams or at the toy store.

Fast-forward 30 years, wearable technologies are now expanding our capabilities to unforeseen levels. I first started experimenting with the Android Wear Developer Preview in March, 2014. Back then, Google’s development environment, Android Studio, was still in beta testing and the APIs in the SDK were still subject to change. As I continued working with Android Wear, I discovered intriguing features and formidable opportunities for this breakthrough wearable platform.

This site chronicles my journey learning and teaching others how create the best wearable applications possible using Android Wear.
