Attendees discuss app opportunities, new SDKs at Samsung's first developer conference

Samsung recently held its first developer conference in San Francisco, where the consumer electronics giant released five different SDKs to create apps for its smartphones, tablets and smart TVs.

More than 1,300 developers reportedly attended the Samsung event, which was described by a few Twitter observers as standing-room only:

While many developers seemed to appreciate the attention from Samsung, some suggested the firm has more work to do to help identify how its user experience on smart devices will differ from the competition.

Many attendees, however, seemed to find some value from being at the conference.

For others, a Samsung developer conference was more like a non-event.

Finally, although there has been considerable interest in Samsung's Galaxy Gear smart watch, a number of those commenting online suggested they were more fascinated by the opportunities of a more traditional device.
