The NFC Forum, a non-profit industry association that advances the use of Near Field Communication (NFC) technology, will hold a special event for software developers on Friday, March 21 in San Francisco.
Developers from all industries are invited to attend and discover where NFC technology and the “Internet of Things” are headed in 2014.
The “Spotlight for Developers” brings together top names in mobile devices, consumer electronics, software, and wireless technology.
The event showcases NFC integration in new products, services, vertical markets, and software, leading to opportunities for developers. Presenters are leading players on smartphone platforms, including Android, Blackberry 10 OS, and Windows Phone.
“With over 500 million NFC devices in the market this year, the development and deployment of fresh, new applications will drive expansion of the NFC ecosystem, and stimulate business and consumer demand,” said Koichi Tagawa, chairman of the NFC Forum.
“The Spotlight for Developers is as much an opportunity for NFC Forum members to learn from the developer community as it is a chance to share our expertise and the latest NFC products.”
NFC technology enables consumers to make transactions, exchange digital content, and connect electronic devices with a touch.
The NFC Forum was launched as a non-profit industry association in 2004 by leading mobile communications, semiconductor, and consumer electronics companies.
