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.

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