Creating a mobile app that communicates with a custom wearable device via a Bluetooth Low Energy connection seems like an unusual experience, that wouldn’t possibly happen to you, would it? Well, let me tell you that the Internet of Things is here and it’s full of interesting opportunities, so we, as a community, should keep learning and get ready to seize them!
During this talk, I’d like to tell you a few stories and lessons learned about my experience creating iOS apps and SDKs to interface with several smartwatches made for monitoring physiological signals. We’ll go through code samples, tools, unexpected bugs, clever ideas and bad mistakes, hoping we’ll learn something together in the process.
Senior software engineer and mobile team leader at Empatica, a startup that creates medical quality devices, designed both for research and to improve lives, currently focusing on helping people with epilepsy. He has worked with custom wearable devices for the past five years and learned a lesson or two on how to deal with their issues in the wild. He firmly believes in the importance of sharing lessons learned with the community. When in need of a hard reset, he looks for mountains to climb.
