Important announcements made at Samsung Developer Conference (SDC 2019)

Daljot Singh

Samsung Developer Conference 2019 concluded a few weeks ago, attracting more than 5800 attendees. Whether you missed it or want to refresh your memories of the experience, here is a list of some of the important events and announcements.


Knox Partner Program

This new Knox Partner Program is an evolution of the previous Samsung Enterprise Alliance Program (SEAP). The program is completely free to join. Our partners can enjoy this program in four ways:



Samsung unveiled a groundbreaking addition to the Bixby Developer Studio called "capsules". With this feature, it is easier than ever before to create a chatbot without the need for any major coding. The user simply needs to provide relevant data and guide Bixby on what to do with that data. It’s always better to show than to tell. On that note, check out the part of the SDC presentation that describes the feature:



At Samsung, we believe it is impossible to get to the top without collaborating with our peers. To facilitate this collaboration, we introduced some interesting projects at SDC:

  • Alongside Verizon and BlueJeans, Samsung has developed video mobile conferencing. This makes video conferencing available to everyone, without needing any expensive equipment.
  • Samsung and IBM announced the safety for first responders platform utilizing IBM’s cloud and 5G capabilities. This platform plans to help track an employee’s vitals, like heart-rate and physical activity levels. This information helps the system determine if the person is in distress and results in an automatic dispatch of help.
  • Last but not the least, the Samsung Solve for Tomorrow program’s teacher alumni made a call-to-action to developers. They urged developers to mentor students as well as guide teachers and schools to help foster STEM education in remote areas. They stressed the importance of investing in rural areas and to eventually stop the rural brain-drain.


Stay tuned:

Hope you enjoyed the article. We also launched a new Consolidated Developer Guide with the Knox Partner Program. It aims to help users find the right documents and get correct guidance. We will discuss more about that in the next blog post. Until then, feel free to look for more information about SDC’s events and workshops.
