Abstract:
By bringing technology closer, we can get it out of the way.  This innovative idea will be taken as a foundation for exploring Glass and the Glass platform.  We'll cover the latest design principles for Glass software (called Glassware), continue with an overview of the Glass platform, and take an in-depth look at the Google Mirror API.  Examples of current and future Glassware will be shown to demonstrate best practices and give a glimpse at the future of personal computing we are creating together.  Plenty of time will be left for questions and conversation.
