When a tech company holds a conference for developers, you can pretty much bet the speakers will have something new to share with the attendees. At the very first Samsung Developer Conference, this pattern continues as 5 new and updated SDKs have been announced for the company's various platforms. This batch of SDKs are centered on Android, Smart TVs, and enterprise development.
- Samsung Smart TV SDK
- Samsung Multiscreen SDK
- Samsung Multiscreen Gaming SDK
- Samsung KNOX SDK
- Samsung Mobile SDK
The Mobile SDK is technically new, but it's really meant to bring together various TouchWiz SDKs that had previously been distributed separately. The package now includes: Chord, Gesture, Image Filter, Look, Media Control, Motion, MultiWindow, Pen, Professional Audio, and Visual View.
Samsung is, unsurprisingly, making a strong push for developers to leverage its newly minted KNOX security layer within the business landscape. The KNOX SDK introduces support for the BYOD (bring your own device) movement and gives developers access to some of the enhanced security features.
Samsung is labeling all of the new SDKs as beta at this time. If you're interested in the Mobile SDK, it is available here. The other SDKs haven't been posted to the developer portal yet, but they will probably turn up in the next few days.
