Hello! Welcome to the very quick-and-dirty PebbleA2 site that I just threw together a moment ago with the hope of planting a seed from which a local Pebble community might grow!
Who am I? You can call me @ishotjr, or @IshJr for short! I’m a huge Pebble enthusiast - I backed the original, as well as the Time, and recently, the Time 2 and Core. I dabbled with earlier versions of the SDK, but got really into Pebble development while waiting for my Time to arrive. I built a working smartstrap before the SDK to support it had even been released, and, with the brilliant @racerx, went on to win the hackathon at which it was announced. Since then, I’ve made various silly smartstraps, and occasionally even something useful - oh, and recently won another hackathon with teammate @robisodd. At the recent Ottawa event, I had a chance to experience the vibrant Pebble community that has formed there, and it inspired me to attempt to create something similar in Ann Arbor.
I’ve set an extremely tentative date and time for our initial meeting:
6pm on Wednesday, June 29th, at HopCat in Ann Arbor
This is just an initial suggestion to be iterated upon - get in touch via @PebbleA2 with thoughts, suggestions, conflicts, etc. - there’s still plenty of room for tweaks at this point!
The initial meeting will be a casual get-together where we can survey the local Pebble landscape, share projects and experiences, and talk about how to get started with Pebble development, for those who are interested.
