Part 1: In this Session you will be able to get familiar with Glass capabilities, understand the Now concept and design guides for Glass in general. Part 2: In this session will dive into the Glass Developer Kit (GDK) and will practice developing for glass. The GDK is an add-on to the Android SDK that lets you build Glassware that runs directly on Glass. The session will cover how to start developing for Glass, overview about the GDK and a live demo on some GDK features.
