Last summer, Google offered a $1,500 pre-order for its Google Glass at the I/O conference. Now, a little less than six months later, the company has invited those who signed up to attend one of two developer events it has planned at the end of the month. The two events are being held in New York City and San Francisco.
The email invite that went out reads: "Join us for an early look at Glass and two full days of hacking on the upcoming Google Mirror API in San Francisco or New York. These hackathons are just for developers in the Explorer program and we’re calling them the Glass Foundry. It’s the first opportunity for a group of developers to get together and develop for Glass."
According to the invite, the first day will kick off with an introduction to Google Glass, with attendees receiving a unit to use during the Foundry. After the introduction, developers will then be given a look at the Mirror API, followed by development. Google engineers will be available on-site to lend a hand.
The second day will be wrapped up with special guest judges and a round of demonstrations. Those who wish to attend must register for the Foundry of their choice by January 18 at 4PM PST. Don't delay, space is limited. Those who get a slot will then receive their confirmation letter with instructions on how to proceed from there. The San Francisco Foundry is being held on January 28 and 29, while the New York City Foundry is being held on February 1 and 2.
