While Samsung is, first and foremost, an Android OEM, they also have quite a few apps and services and even a few software development kits for things like Knox, Tizen and more. With this in mind, last year the Korean giant kicked off their very first developer’s conference in October in hopes of attracting more developer attention to its products and services. Now Samsung has announced that their second Developer Conference is scheduled for November 11th through the 13th, and will take place at Moscone West in San Francisco.
What can we expect from this year’s event? While Samsung doesn’t tell us straight out, the Samsung Tomorrow blog mentions some of what they’ve already done and touches on some of their more recent developer efforts.
Since [last year’s conference], Samsung announced its plans to release the improved Samsung Mobile SDK with Samsung Galaxy S5 and introduced the first S Health SDK powered by Samsung health platform in MWC2014. Samsung also introduced both of the Tizen SDK for Wearable and Samsung Accessory SDK powered by Samsung Gear series. There is absolutely no doubt Samsung has not been shy about getting closer to the developer community.
Bottom-line, Samsung will focus on improving its relationship with developers while giving them improved tools needed to work better with Samsung’s various apps, services and the Tizen operating system. For those interested in attending, you can sign up to be notified when registration fully opens.
