With the upcoming public release of the Google Glass, I started thinking about possible applications. I thought of a few but there is one that I see huge potential in. I pulled the trigger and picked up the Google Glass Explorer Edition. Yes, I’m still sore from the $1,500 purchase price but I’m looking at it as an investment for future income. At least that’s what I keep telling myself. There is only one problem, I don’t know the first thing about developing for the Android platform or the Mirror API that is used in the Glass. While I do not have a lot of spare time due to work (SharePoint Admin), school (Full Sail University – Web Design and Development), wife (Bulgarian and still hopes to teach me the language some day), daughter (5-years old and into everything) and pets, my thoughts of being able to teach myself in my spare time have all but vanished. I need to figure out how to add more hours to the day so I have time for my hobbies.
So, my question is, how can I learn to develop for the Android platform and the Mirror API quickly and efficiently?
