At Google I/O we announced Google Fit: an open platform for developers to more easily build fitness apps. Today we’re making a preview SDK available to developers so that you can familiarize yourself with the APIs and start building. Check out the blog post for more info: (http://googledevelopers.blogspot.com/2014/08/google-fit-preview-sdk-now-available.html)
Join this community to ask questions and share ideas about using the Google Fit Preview SDK.
Get started at http://developers.google.com/fit to set up your development environment, check out the API documentation, and view samples.
Start developing right now, and you can launch apps to the public when Google Fit launches on Android, Android Wear, and Web later this year.

UXD - What is Context and Why Does it Matter?
Edit: Oops... thought the direct link to recent styles was new.
Here's a gist of what we are trying to do.
We have some co-ordinate information (latitude and longitudes), and a bunch of annotations for these co-ordinates on the server. We want to embed a Google Map (or Google Earth) inside our web page, which shows these co-ordinates as balloons (or some icon) and annotate them with relevant information.
We have seen videos where this is done manually (copying the embed URL into our HTML page, or open a kml/kmz file in Google Earth etc), but we cannot have any manual step in between, as this is used by end users (clients) who cannot do this. We need to do this programmatically.
We want to what is the best way to go about doing this? Also, in the future we want to update the map dynamically with live data.
Thanks in advance.

Our friends at the Guggenheim (http://goo.gl/OxXVCE) and SFMOMA (http://goo.gl/KNcb13) are using the Google Maps Embed API to show the museums’ locations, allowing visitors to save the museum to Google Maps directly from the website. Visitors can now quickly plan their day and navigate to the museums by pulling up their saved places on any device with Google Maps.
To get started, head over to our developers page (http://goo.gl/05miGI) and embed away!
