This presentation will cover a brief introduction on how the Bluetooth Low Energy technology works. Then it will present the current status of its support on Linux, presenting the available APIs and how to interact with Bluetooth Smart devices. Then we'll present the profiles we're currently working on and what support can be expected to be found on Linux and BlueZ this year. There will be also a few demos of Bluetooth Smart devices working on Linux.
The audience of this talk is application or framework developers that want to add support for Bluetooth Smart devices to their software, hardware vendors, and technology curious. Basic Bluetooth understanding is recommended but not required.
