Introduction to iBeacon and Bluetooth Low Energy

iBeacons are small devices that transmit data via Bluetooth Low Energy. iOS devices can detect these signals as well as transmit data as iBeacons. When within range of an iBeacon, events like push notifications and server calls can be triggered inside apps.

As business owners, mobile marketers and developers, iBeacon technology presents us an incredible opportunity to build sophisticated, proximity based apps to solve problems and engage customers.

In this talk, we’ll explore:

1. What are iBeacons and BLE?
2. How to detect iBeacons inside your apps
3. How to make your iOS device act as an iBeacon
4. Potential applications / Apps using iBeacon
