The MOOC initiative, which emerged from Stanford University, has teamed up with Google to bring developers, free of charge, the keys to creating applications on Android Wear.
The course, which lasts for about two weeks, is part of the Ubiquitous Computing series that includes chapters on Android Auto, Android TV and Google Cast. You must have previous experience in developing Android applications, access to the latest version of Android Studio and be familiar with using Github to take part.
The course not only focuses on how to extend your application to Android SmartWatchs (with all that is needed to reach your users via notificaciones) but to also create native applications of the company's smart watches.
Discover all details of the course here, which promises snippets – or reusable code –, tons of tips and an in-depth look into code.
Registration will give you access to videos of instructors and you can also do practical exercises to implement what has been learned.

More and more companies are using connected devices to build specific products and services, which in most cases rely on a new concept of identity. Security, costs and experience itself are based on this new identity.
Nowadays, there are countless devices connected to the Internet, from coffeemakers to refrigerators. According to data from Gartner, by 2020 there will be 30 billion devices connected to the Internet thanks to IoT. The Internet of Things (IoT) is revolutionizing the health sector and the workplace by means of wearables and mobile apps. With data collection, transmission and combination, the IoT offers a healthier future to all of its users.
Google, Samsung, Microsoft, Adidas, Under Armour, Pebble, Fitbit, Misfit… Business derived from wearables is growing over time. Sales keep going up and more revenue is being forecast but none of this would be possible without APIs.
