Samsung rejoins the big leagues: plans a developer conference this winter

Last October, Samsung made its developer-focused intentions clear with its Developers Conference. It was there where Samsung announced the Mobile SDK, Knox Enterprise SDK, and more. Now, it looks to follow up by announcing that this year’s Developers Conference will start on November 11 and go through November 13.

This year’s Developers Conference will be held at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, California. Currently, those interested in attending can only sign up to be notified, with registration presumably taking place at a later date.

Samsung will likely announce updates to its Mobile SDK, as well as its S Health, Tizen for Wearable, and Samsung Accessory SDKs. In addition, it might talk about its iris-scanning security feature, though that seems more like a remote possibility than a concrete one. Finally, it’s unlike that Samsung will wait so long to announce the Galaxy Note 4, though the company will likely talk up the rumored handset.

Recently, Samsung has made headlines for several different reasons. On one side, we have the company issuing an update to the original Galaxy Gear, giving its owners the choice of changing to Tizen. On the other side, the company suspended business with one of its suppliers days after China Labor Watch, a United States-based workers’ rights group, found evidence of child labor at the site.
