The Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) has announced the 2016 dates for its Blue University LIVE, a global series of full-day training sessions for developers new to Bluetooth technology. 

Blue University LIVE provides the opportunity for developers to learn how to build and connect Bluetooth enabled products. The in-person training sessions gives developers the tools and resources needed to turn ideas into reality for the Internet of Things (IoT). 

Blue University LIVE covers the entire process of development, from initial coding to marketing. Working sessions include using the Bluetooth Developer Studio, creating sample code, implementing code, building mobile applications, and Bluetooth SIG product qualification requirements. 

Platinum sponsors for Blue University LIVE include Allion Test Labs, Dialog Semiconductor, Ellisys, Insight SiP, Nordic Semiconductor, and Teledyne LeCroy. All session attendees will receive a downloadable sample project, sample code, and developer kits from Nordic Semiconductor and Dialog Semiconductor. 

Developers can register for training sessions at Upcoming Blue University LIVE dates include: 5 May 2016 in Shenzhen, China; 24 May 2016 in San Jose, CA; 9 June 2016 in Berlin, Germany; 22 September 2016 in Austin, TX; 27 September 2016 in Seoul, South Korea; 29 September 2016 in Tokyo, Japan; and 4 October 2016 in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Among the available resources that SIG provides developers include: 

Gateway Smart Starter Kit: Learn how to move data from all Bluetooth sensors into the cloud without a mobile device while giving the ability to control all of them from one place.

Beacon Smart Starter Kit: Build a beacon or add Bluetooth beacon technology into an existing products and apps.

Application Accelerator 2.0: Create code to develop Bluetooth apps that work on tablets, smartphones, or PCs across Windows 10, iOS 9 in Swift and Android 6.0.

Application Accelerator: Get the source code needed to quickly develop Bluetooth low energy apps that work on all devices across Android 4.3, Blackberry 10, iOS, OSX and Windows 8 OS platforms.

Smart Starter Kit: A comprehensive package of hands-on labs and sample source code that walks developers through assembling a Bluetooth low energy device from basic parts and create a mobile app to go with it.

Bluetooth Developer Studio: An application development and debugging tool with a simple, graphical interface. Use existing, adopted specifications, or create custom services. There is a library of plugins that can be added to a project that provide a ready source of integration.
