The Qualcomm Uplinq 2014 developers conference in San Francisco is less than a month away. If you haven’t done so yet, there’s still time to register.

Developers have been asking us “Why should I go to Uplinq?” Here are the Top 5 reasons:

#5 Great sessions

This year, Uplinq is featuring 50 sessions, touching on everything from augmented reality, context awareness and connecting things, to Internet music, mobile graphics and Android platform debugging and development.

#4 Networking opportunities

There’s a reason why Uplinq is “where mobile links up”—nearly everyone that’s involved in the mobile ecosystem is there. This is your opportunity to meet the people you need in your professional network.

#3 Keynotes

This year’s opening keynote will feature Qualcomm CEO Steve Mollenkopf. Find out his thoughts on the advances in connectivity and processing power, and the implications and opportunities for developers as new levels of intelligence permeate the network, from the core to the expanding edge. And headlining the guest keynote spot this year is Robin Thurston, president and co-founder of MapMyFitness and senior vice president of Under Armour Connected Fitness. He’ll highlight business lessons he learned while launching MapMyFitness, why to build for mobile first, and how the partnership came about with one of the world's most recognized and fastest-growing sports brands.

#2 Code Labs

Uplinq is one of the few conferences that offer a deep, technical dive into mobile. The Code Labs track of sessions—led by a team of engineers—will get you “hands-on” and provide technical training on how to integrate specific features or use various performance tools, SDKs and APIs.

And the #1 reason to attend Uplinq 2014 is… Market Match

These exclusive business meetings are 20 minutes each and provide developers—like you—with an opportunity to pitch your mobile content and services to the likes of Amazon, AT&T, Facebook and many others that represent commercial paths. Think of it as a “speed dating for opportunities.” 

Time’s getting short. Register for Uplinq 2014 today!
