San Francisco! Emancipate the codes! The long-awaited event, Samsung Developers Conference, is finally about to kick off, and it is time to see what all the buzz is about. For the past couple weeks, we have been covering the essentials of the first annual Samsung Developers Conference in the United States, so now expect to get the latest news on the Samsung Developers Conference (SDC 2013) right here at Samsung Tomorrow!
So far, there are an estimated 1,300 people registered for the conference in San Francisco. That is a whole brigade of next generation app developers. The wild thing is that people are still signing up for the conference as we speak (or write)! If you see the line in front of the registration booth, you can tell how wild this conference is going to be. Whoa!
If you think that the only things that the 1,300-plus people will get is an exclusive look at the latest tools, SDKs, and emerging platforms, think twice.
Check out what Sarah Paiji, CEO of Snapette, and Jana Messerschmidt, Vice President of Business Development & Platform, at Twitter have to say about their experience on collaborating with Samsung to deliver groundbreaking apps and what they expect to get out of the conference.
That is not all.
Wouldn’t it make sense that if you are developing an app with Smart TV SDK or Samsung Mobile SDK, you would want a Smart TV or the latest Samsung Mobile device as well?
A total of 4 Smart TVs and 12 Galaxy Note 3s will be given out for 16 lucky attendees. Where and when can you participate in the lucky draws? Feel free to NOT share the info below ;)
Exploratorium Party(10/28)- 2 Smart TVs
