Samsung Opens Registration for Inaugural Developer Conference

Samsung officially began accepting registrations for its inaugural Developers Conference, which is scheduled for Oct. 27-29 in San Francisco. Although most of the 40+ topics have yet to be revealed, Samsung promises registrants the opportunity to “engage with industry leaders, collaborate with fellow developers, and learn about new Samsung tools and SDK’s.” Technical sessions and presentations by industry leaders will cover such topics as integrating NFC into your app, cross platform development, and how to implement an advanced user interface into your design. There are also several sessions slated for discussion about Samsung’s first smartphone running Tizen.

While Samsung is predominantly known for its smartphones and tablets, the electronics giant will also be holding development sessions for other technologies including Smart TV. Earlier this year at Mobile World Congress, Samsung Media Solution Center president Dr. WonPyo Hong said, “Samsung is committed to growing its smartphone ecosystem in close collaboration with our developer and service partners. Our focus is on continually innovating across a diverse range of products and services that meet the needs of users, and we are committed to providing developers with the latest tools and resources to enable that.”

Developers can register on the conference website for a registration fee of $299.
