Winners will be announced at a special event in Austin during SXSW in March!
We're excited to announce our first hands-on workshops designed to provide experience, instruction and inspiration for building with the Bose AR platform and enabled devices. We'll be holding these in an amazing space right in downtown Austin, in collaboration with our partners Capital Factory. The goal for these workshops is to give members of our growing community, interested in enhancing experiences with Bose AR, the opportunity to meet our teams and get hands-on with our technology.
Six months ago, at SXSW 2018 in Austin, a team from Bose gave early demonstrations of a new platform technology. Previewing special devices to enjoy music and control an augmented sound experience, Bose AR made an incredible first impression. Equipping attendees with devices to try out, the team listened and took user feedback and excitement back to Bose offices.
As you may have seen, today we were excited to unveil the new line of Bose smart speakers and soundbars, which will be available this fall. At the same time, we're also excited to share here with the BoseDevs community some details around our plans to make these products accessible to your applications.
Hello, Bose Devs!
Today, I'm really excited to announce a new addition to the Bose team - Chuck Freedman has joined us as our Developer Relations Lead. Since you'll be seeing a lot of him in the coming weeks and months, both on the forums here and out at events like workshops and hackathons, I sat down with Chuck for a little Q&A to help introduce him to all of you.
Here at Bose, we have a long legacy of innovating in audio, from bringing room-filling sound to a tiny speaker, to canceling out airplane noise in a comfortable pair of headphones. We’re proud to say that we’ve been doing this for over fifty years.
We’re always looking for new places where we can innovate and bring joy to our customers. And recently we’ve been really excited about augmented reality.
