And That’s a Wrap! Check Out Highlights from SDC19.

Recommended Posts

Thanks to everyone who came to Samsung Developer Conference last week or tuned in to the livestream! Here were some of our favorite moments that weren’t covered in the Day 1 and Day 2 recaps.

Code Lab

Code Lab sat in the center of Tech Square and allowed devs to get hands-on experience with the latest SDKs and developer tools. Samsung engineers were there for support and fun coding challenges gave attendees the chance to win exclusive prizes.

PENUP

The PENUP app is a social network for designers on the Galaxy smartphone. You can learn how to draw digitally by tracing on top of a video clip or background image – it’s a cool way to turn photos into masterpieces! The PENUP team secured two digital artists for SDC19. The artists roamed around and used a Tab S6 and S Pen to sketch attendees and capture the action at SDC19. There were also great tutorials on the S Pen and S Pen SDK in Tech Square!

Laugh and Learn

Senior Developer Evangelist Tony Morelan and comedian Corey Rosen had a high-energy comedy and improv presentation on Day 1 called Galaxy Watch Face Design from Concept to Completion. Attendees and designers collaborated in real time to create an interactive Galaxy watch face. It was a fun experiment that demonstrated how easy it is to design without coding. The audience was able to quickly create a playful watch face.

Fit @ SDC

One theme of SDC19 was collaboration. Samsung is forging new partnerships with brands to help devs have more tools at their disposal and reach a wider audience. Two such partners are Under Armour and Skimble, and each morning they put together a wellness activity that featured their new Galaxy Store apps.

Day 1: Yoga-Centric Exercise Class with Skimble

This class was led by a trainer from Made for Samsung partner Skimble. Yoga mats and Samsung Galaxy Watch Active2s were available for attendees, and they could download the Workout Trainer by Skimble app to follow along with a Samsung-specific workout. Everyone was able to monitor their heart rate on the watch while getting their move on!

Day 2: Fun Run/Walk with Under Armour

Under Armour organized a two-mile walk or three-mile run for attendees before the conference. Samsung Galaxy Watch Active2s were given to participants and synced with the Map My Run app to track their distance, pace, and calorie burn.

      And that’s a wrap for SDC19!
      We started our morning at Fit @ SDC with Under Armour before heading to the Spotlight Session. If you didn’t get a chance to attend, make sure to watch the video. We also listened to Justin Sun’s tech session at the Theater, along with a few others, and continued exploring Dev Park and Tech Square. There was no shortage of inspiration!
      Check out some highlights from today:
      1. Spotlight Session
      The Spotlight Session really hit the developer sweet spot. Taher Behbehani spoke about B2B innovation, while Vitalik Buterin dove into blockchain technology. Overall, it highlighted What’s Next for Samsung developers. Keep reading for some key takeaways.

      Rapid B2B Growth
      Taher focused on B2B growth and innovation. Samsung has over 700 million devices deployed around the world and serves 50,000 large enterprise customers globally. 2019 especially was a big growth year – our mobile revenue grew by 20% and we doubled our tablet sales.

      The trends driving this rapid growth are:
      Growing Device Landscape – new market opportunities in industrial devices and a technology refresh that moves away from single-purpose devices A New Generation of Networks – deployment of private networks Changing Apps – IoT, AI, and edge computing We’re excited to see how our devs take advantage of this sector.
      Tab Active Pro
      The Galaxy Tab Active Pro is now available in the US! Its hardware and software will give enterprise devs the tools that they need to innovate.
      Hardware Updates: It’s purpose-built. Rain, snow, and mud roll right off of Galaxy Tab Active Pro and you can wear while using work gloves.
      Software Updates: The Galaxy Tab Active Pro includes Samsung DeX, which enables an immersive PC-like experience. It is also mobile POS-ready, allowing you to easily integrate payment and inventory management features in your apps to improve the user experience. It’s ideal for devs who are building apps for mobile food service vendors, delivery, and logistics companies.

      Knox and Security
      Knox provides easy-to-use tools for business users to control devices at every step of the mobile journey. It manages the different layers of the stack to get deeper levels of customization and integration.
      Today, the Knox Partner Program was introduced. Devs now have access to partners around the world, the latest test devices, and unlimited developer keys. You can also get your apps Knox-validated.

      Blockchain and Samsung
      Vitalik spoke about Ethereum and the future of blockchain. He praised Samsung for its efforts integrating Ethereum application support in its devices. Despite the challenges blockchain tech currently faces, Vitalik believes that blockchains are almost ready for mass adoption. He spoke to many scaling solutions and thinks that as 5G gains more traction, it will also help.

      Inspirational Dev Stories
      Lori Fraleigh, Senior Director of Developer Relations at Samsung, introduced several inspirational developers to the audience.
      Daniel Mittendorf: Founder of DigiVoice.io
      As a Bixby Premier Developer, Daniel works with Bixby Marketplace to share DigiVoice capsules. His capsules are at the forefront of voice tech and can launch sounds that are undetectable to human ears. He’s discovered how to keep mosquitoes at bay and comfort your pets when you’re gone with a single sound.
      Melanie Lombardi: Echo Visuals
      Melanie creates stunning themes that transform Samsung phones. She started designing themes four years ago when she got her first Samsung Galaxy S6 edge. Melanie was able to turn a fascinating side project into a successful, income-generating business. Now, Echo Visuals is one of Samsung’s top revenue makers in the Galaxy Theme store.
      These are just two Samsung devs mentioned during the Spotlight Session that exemplify Where Now Meets Next. We can’t wait to see what our talented developer community comes up with next!

      2. Justin Sun at the Theater
      Justin, founder and CEO of Tron, spoke to a crowd at the Theater during his tech session, “TRON, Blockchain, and Real-World Uses.”

      TRON is now supported by Samsung Blockchain Keystore SDK, which means that you have direct access to apps that run TRON blockchain while on Samsung devices. Devs will have access to a crypto-ready audience, that can start using their applications with ease!

      3. Mobile Design Showcase
      The Samsung Mobile Design Competition challenges professional and student designers to imagine how mobile devices will be used in the future. It also presents a fresh perspective on how the Galaxy will evolve. The winners had a chance to showcase their designs at the Theater today, and were honored during Keynote on Day 1.

      Today at the Samsung Developer Conference the company announced that it would open its smart TV platform, Tizen TV, to third-party manufacturers.
      “With Tizen, consumers can stream content from hundreds of apps,” Sang Kim, Global Head of Smart TV Business Development said during the keynote. “For the first time we’re going to make the Tizen TV OS available to other manufacturers.” 
      According to Kim, over 100 million TVs currently support Tizen and while that’s a substantial number, this move could stem the flow of manufacturers like Hisense and TCL from rushing to Roku TV and Android TV platforms for their smart platforms. It could even increase the Bixby user base too, which is a key goal for Samsung. 
      So what, exactly, makes Tizen so appealing that TV makers would want to adopt it? Primarily its Samsung TV Plus platform which offers free content and integrates with over-the-top cable providers, as well as its large app library powered by developers (hence why the announcement was made at its developer conference).
      Unfortunately, beyond the announcement of news, Samsung isn’t offering any additional details – it’s not ready to announce potential partners, for example, nor is it ready to reveal when the first third-party Tizen TVs will be available.
      The silver lining? With CES 2020 right around the corner, more information is likely coming in two month's time.

      I keep getting an SDBExceptionError when trying to install an app to Samsung TV from the Tizen SDK.  The error is "closed closed".  The connection is good.  It appears connected in the IDE device manager.  I also permitted to install on that device in device manager.   Everything looks normal, but SDB fails.
