It will be nice to see 3rd party developers be allowed to create content for the Chrome cast. So far, mine has been collecting dust. I want Airplay dammit!Customers and developers alike have been waiting for Google to permit the release of homebrew Chromecast appsones not made by its special partners, that isand now they have a new reason to hope. The company could finally be poised to lift restrictions governing support for the TV streaming dongle.
Google has invited several developers to its Mountain View campus next month for a hackathon centered around its Chromecast device and related software developer kit (SDK). The primary focus of the event, to be held December 7-8, will be to let attendees try out the "upcoming release" of the Google Cast SDK. The previous version of the kit was "a preview" only, which meant Chromecast devs couldn't actually publish any apps that used it.
Event Details: Date: December 7-8, 2013 Location: Googleplex, Mountain View, CA
