    Apple has created a lot of buzz around Bluetooth Low Energy with their release of iBeacons, but there is still much to be explored and understood about this emerging technology. Sequence creative director John Donohoe will help sort through the common misconceptions about proximity-based sensors by discussing the fundamentals of the underlying technology and its common applications. This presentation is designed for product managers and user experience designers who are new to BLE beacons, but is also suitable for anyone interested in getting past the "magical" marketing videos to hear the real deal.


    After this presentation a product manager or user-experience designer will have an understanding that is elevated above the blue-sky concept videos and see the real, feasible opportunities around designing experiences that include location awareness and BLE beacons.
