Sony Developer Advocate Troed Sångberg Talks Beyond Smartphones at XDA:DevCon 2014

As we go international with xda:devcon ’14 in Manchester, UK on the weekend of September 26-28, we are thrilled to have our friends at Sony returning as a sponsor. The great thing about Sony is that they don’t just make a token effort; they bring it.

We’ve already talked about one of Sony’s presentations with Alin Jerpelea talk on Sony and AOSP. Today, we are happy to announce another great presentation from our friends at Sony for xda:devcon ’14. Troed Sångberg is a developer advocate with Sony Developer Relations. With a core technical background in the home computer scene of the 80s, he’s been a professional telecom developer since the late 90s. Most recently he has worked in research, with an interest in the intersection between disruptive technology and the culture of society. Troed considers decentralization of creation–how anyone anywhere can invent, distribute and disrupt–to be the major game changer of our times.

At xda:devcon ’13 head of Developer Relations at Sony Mobile Karl-Johan Dahlstrom gave a presentation titled “How Sony Supports and Works With Independent Developers.” In his presentation, In his presentation, he talked about and gave examples of how independent developers and Sony can, and have, collaborate through different opportunities and open initiatives.

This year, Sångberg offers up another excellent presentation entitled, “Beyond Smartphones, And How To Get There.” The era of SmartWear and Internet of Things is upon us. This session will extrapolate the last 8000 years of human innovation into the realities of the present and near future. Sångberg covers the SDKs available for current and soon-to-come functionality, as well as a new service Sony is introducing to drastically reduce friction for developers with regards to app verification. Expect to see tech details on SmartWatch, SmartBand, SmartEyeglass and Wi-Fi controlled Sony cameras.
