We have an awesome community. Every day our forums are full of users and developers having interesting conversations about the present and future of Human Computer Interaction. It's easy for anyone to jump in and be a part of that, and I encourage you (yes, you specifically. Hi there.) to do so. Come say hello. Tell us how we're doing. What you're working on. Ask for help or feedback. Whatever you like!
There is lot of cool stuff happening on there already, but I want to draw your attention to a few posts specifically that everyone should be aware of. Here we go!
Just joining us? This giant thread is the place to go in order to officially introduce yourself to the community. I look forward to seeing you there!
When we update one of our SDKs or the firmware for the Myo armband itself, we make a post here. We may tell you other places, like the developer blog or newsletter, and obviously the downloads page will be up to date if you check, but the SDK and Firmware updates thread will get updated every time. Even for minor updates.
Our official Windows and OSX SDKs come with C++ (and Unity) support. That's awesome, but not everyone's cup of tea. That's what this thread is for. It's chock full of bindings our awesome community has made to let you write Myo-enabled applications with your language or platform of choice.
Every time an application is published or updated in the Myo Market, we'll post here. Subscribe to this thread, and you'll get an email notification every time that happens. Saves you from having to check the Myo Market yourself all the time to see what is new.
Lastly, something every developer should read: Our FAQ. The Myo armband is something completely new. There are a lot of really good questions we get asked about it all the time. Please save me from having to type out an answer to them over and over!
That's where things are today. Is there something you think is missing? Let us know in the forums!
See you there!
