So there's been a rumor about the Hims BrailleSence note takers floating around the net for a while. I can't remember where I first heard this rumor, but I'm curious as to whether it's true or not.
Is there, in fact, a BrailleSence SDK (software development kit)?
If there is, I'm pretty sure it's for something like C++ or something.

If you mean the old note takers that are Windows Based, as far as I know yes, there is an SDK. But it was only available on request and you first had to demonstrate that you know how to program to obtain it. I read this. years ago on a Polish site specialising in AT news. For the Polaris, you shouldn't need one as it's Android based so you can just program using the standard Android SDK.

The twins of Mammon quarrelled. Their warring plunged the world into a new darkness, and the beast abhorred the darkness. So it began to move swiftly, and grew more powerful, and went forth and multiplied. And the beasts brought fire and light to the darkness. - from The Book of Mozilla, 15:1

Yeah, assuming you know how to program in Java.

"How to program in Java" is wonderfully nonspecific. In one sense, it's kinda like C++, except everything is in classes and you don't have to worry about garbage collection or pointers. Except then you have Java turning everything into classes, including class creation, until you have to define a 5-class deep hierarchy just to do some simple thing, like catch an exception that you were just going to read the message for in the first place. I can't tell if Android programming is more like programming, or more like classes all the way up.

I find android programming to be notoriously difficult and hard to work with. I get that it's supposed to be fun and all, but honestly I think they've taken object-oriented programming a bit too seriously. I just find it really hard to manage.
