Would Google have its own SDK name for Glass? Of course it would. The Google Glass Development Kit (GDK) is currently in preview mode and is hoped to bring application control and new features to Glass developers.
Google will be renaming the term "software" and now talks of Glassware. The firm's Timothy Jordan has noted (using Google+) that developers have already started building Glassware with the Mirror API. "[Programmers] today will have even broader access to Glass with a Sneak Peek of the Glass Development Kit," wrote Jordan.
The GDK APIs are yet to be finalized or made fully available, but this will very likely be one of the next stages of the project witnessed publicly.
Google heeds that before any programmer starts to use the GDK, they need "intermediate or better" knowledge in Android development.
According to Google, "We recommend starting with the Building Your First App training class at the Android developers site and then building a few simple Android apps before building GDK Glassware."
Developers can now look around at developers.google.com/glass/ to also get their hands on case studies and examples, developers docs detailing best practice techniques, Glassware design patterns (UX patterns to give users a "consistent experience" across all Glassware, and other information such as the Google Mirror API Playground, to allow experimentation in terms of how content is displayed on Glass.
