Play Please bring me coffee - using iBeacons to seamlessly engage with apps - Xamarin included!
This session will introduce iBeacons and discuss how to use them to build context aware applications, and what types of problems those applications can solve. It will look at how you can notify an app when you are near an iBeacon and how you can use them to track indoor location. It will also discuss the downsides, such as security concerns and problems around beacon deployments. As well as discussing the concepts it will also contain a live coding Xamarin demo showing just how easy it is to beacon-enable your apps, with live demos of notifications and indoor location tracking.
