Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months. I personally have a Gear Live which I purchased 8 months ago, and my experience with it has had its ups and downs throughout my time with it. For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...

Hydros’s Programming tutorial for a 13 year old
Well, this is my first time posting a tutorial which I have actually tried in making. I kinda felt bad for the people who are missing out on programming because they htink it is hard. Well, I finally devised the ultimate tutorial which a 13 year old should easily be able to understand if he puts his/her mind into it. I posted pics for EVERY STEP along he way so you can walk through it. Simply open the zip and there are three directories
IMAGES – has all the images to the tutorial (not all tutes have images…don’t be babies)
TUTE – a tute in .doc format
SOURCE – whatever program we made that day, I posted a source code area to post up source for it.
-Enjoy and I hope people learn a few things from it (even though it is quite basic)
NUMBER OF TUTES MADE SO FAR: 3
Tutorial 1: We install visual studio 2010 express edition c# and we make a sooped up version of the boring helloworld app. Maybe even a “pull my finger” app can be developed with the limited knoledge learned from this tute.
Tutorial 2: We make a continuation of helloworld with variables so the user types in a name and the program will say “hello…” + name
Tutorial 3: We make a simple calculator using functions for adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing (kinda complicated but still very easy). – With pictures in the PDF
-If you find problems with ANYTHING, please feel free to post in the comments section below and I will do my best to reply within a day to all questions.
You can find more information in the tutorials thread.
