Move aside Apple and Google. The folks at Samsung have just announced their own developer’s conference, possibly, to show the world that they are no less than the Americans when it comes to crowd pulling events.
The event itself is scheduled to be held at the Moscone Center, which itself is the event hosting centre for the other two developer conferences as well hosted by Apple and Google.
According to tech analysts, while the event will, most likely, not be as huge as the BUILD conference hosted by Microsoft, it is likely to generate some buzz over the next couple of months.
Registrations for the conference opened this week. The South Korea based consumer durables to IT hardware major has suggested that the conference will have over 40 technical sessions. The sessions itself will be run by “leading influencers” in industries for digital content, consumer electronics, and mobile.
