Today, Samsung launched its first developers conference in San Francisco, with more than 1,300 attendees scoping out what the technology company has in the works.
Samsung announced it was releasing five software development kits (SDKs) for developers to use in creating apps for its smartphones, tablets, and smart TVs. Samsung hopes that as more of its future gadgets become connected to each other, developers will optimize more apps for its platform.
“Samsung is creating one of the largest connected platforms spanning a broad range of devices,” the company said in a press release.
Syncing isn’t the only goal on Samsung’s horizon. The company aims to improve relationships with the developer community and erase its reputation of being notoriously difficult to communicate with and tap into.
While Samsung reigns as the largest device maker on the market, it seems to understand that future success relies on establishing a loyal customer base. This conference is a small step in that direction.
