Today, Samsung started pre-registration for developers and attendees who want to attend to the first ever cross-platform and cross-product Samsung Developer Conference, taking place in October.

Samsung is joining the likes of Google, Microsoft and Apple as companies who have conferences dedicated solely to the developers on their platforms. The multi-day conference is to take place October 27 through 29 in San Francisco at the Westin St. Francis Hotel. During the event, you can expect to see a lot of focus on Samsung’s software and SDKs and who knows, maybe all attendees will get a free phone or something.

If you are a developer and are looking to collaborate with other developers to work on Samsung products, hit up the link below to sign up.

  • Developers, developers, developers. {{-_-}}

  • I can see why Samsung would do this since it involves more than just their mobile products, but I’d be shocked if any major developers would attend this.

    Whatever, Samsung. You can’t compete with this:

    Samsung is trying to create their own ecosystem and part of me wants Google to just pull the plug now and cut them off from Google services, or even Android as a whole if that were possible. Are they that greedy and do they really expect to give up on Android or iOS to switch over to their own ecosystem of only Samsung devices and content? They have an app store and various media “hubs” for content consumption and now a developer conference. I would imagine that Samsung devices will soon be like the kindle fire, Android with no connection to Google.

    Not cool.

    Sorry for the brief rant but if anyone can’t tell I’m not exactly a Samsung fan.

      I’m sure this conference will revolve around Android for their mobile products but I doubt that will be the case in the near future. They want control of just about everything like Apple has.

    • As soon as Samsung creates their own ecosystem and has total control over everything, they’ll go the same way Apple did. That’s worked out really well for them. Those who don’t learn from history are doomed to repeat it.

        I don’t see Samsung being able to generate the same support and popularity as Apple and Google have. Yes their Android devices are popular but it will be a lot harder for them to sell their own services over what Apple, Google and even Amazon offer. I feel like most people who already support Samsung will be all for it at first until they realize that all their Google content (apps, games, movies, etc.) will not work in the new ecosystem. I don’t see any iOS users migrating over either.
