Samsung is known for offering TouchWiz widgets, but now they are coming with a big one, the new SDK widget. SDK stands for Software Development Kit, or more exactly, a collection of tools that helps users develop software.
In order to attract SDK adopters, Samsung decided for a big party; the Samsung Widget Developer Camp will be held in the interval of 11-13 September 2009, at the Hyatt Regency, San Francisco, where, for 24 hours, guests will enjoy a cocktail, Wi-Fi, and meeting space.
All this time developers will have to create a widget and they will be able to choose from five categories: Social Media, News/Reference, Health/Fitness, Travel/Entertainment or Humor/Fun. The winner of each category will receive, as a prize, $5,000, and the best-in-show widget will bring its creator a $20,000 prize and the chance to attend CTIA I.T. & Entertainment 2009 expo. All the creations will have the chance to get on some Samsung devices, or go to the Samsung’s Application Store, or to the Samsung Widget Gallery.
Well…I guess all these sound great, as we are talking about widgets, cash and cocktails. 🙂
