Pebble course on 10-11 March 2014

For the Pebble course, on the 10-11 March 2014, you are recommended to bring along a Mac if you have one. If you don't have a Mac, you can bring along a Windows machine loaded with VirtualBox. This is because the SDK for the Pebble is Unix-based, and hence a native version of the SDK is not available for the Windows platform. As such, if you have a Windows machine, you will use VirtualBox to run Ubuntu (a version which I have prepared) and run the SDK on Ubuntu.

As for mobile device, you are required to bring along a mobile device (iOS devices strongly recommended). If you don't have an iOS device, you can also bring along your Android device. The reason for this is that the Pebble mobile app is currently in beta for Android, and it still has some minor issues in terms of stability. The Pebble mobile app for iOS, on the other hand, is already in the AppStore and is much more stable and reliable than its Android counterpart.

Hope to see you all at the Pebble course!
