    Companies like Nest, GoPro, Beats, Oculus and Jawbone have ushered in a brave new era of hardware. It is easier than ever for large corporations and startups alike to concept, prototype and find markets for new hardware ideas; after a 15-year lull, hardware is experiencing an exciting renaissance. What does this mean for app developers? There will soon be thousands of new devices that need apps. Devices will need to speak both to the cloud and to each other; if anything, the advent of a new era in hardware is going to usher in an even bigger era for software.


    Sandeep will share case studies from his company's work with hardware companies such as Cuff Jewelry, Skully Helmets and the JIBO robot. He will discuss strategies for marketing and crowdfunding, share app development blueprints and challenges, and engage the audience in an interactive discussion about their own projects.
