The Bluetooth Special Interest Group has launched the Bluetooth Developer Portal today, providing a resource to help developers and engineers. Available resources include training tools, interactive forums and quick-start guides.
In addition, the Bluetooth SIG is also offering a series of free Bluetooth developer webinars from the end of this month.
Michael Foley, Ph.D, executive director of the Bluetooth SIG, said “Because Bluetooth technology is a cross-platform global standard, the opportunity for app developers is bound only by their imagination. The Bluetooth Developer Portal aims to help unleash some of this creativity. For example, SIG member company Wahoo Fitness already has more than 80 smartphone applications that work with the company’s heart rate monitor. This is just one device. Imagine the possibilities when you consider there are seven billion Bluetooth devices.”
16,000 companies are currently members of the Bluetooth SIG.
