Did you know that an estimated one billion smart phones shipped in 2013? That’s one billion potential customers for your apps. And even better, estimates show eight billion cumulative units forecasted between 2014 and 2018 (source: Gartner, March 2014). That’s a huge amount of potential! Are you ready to take advantage of it? One of the best ways is by ensuring your apps capitalize on the built-in capabilities in those phones. You might think you have software/hardware integration down, but there’s always something new. That’s why you’ll want to attend the Software-Hardware Integration sessions at Qualcomm® Uplinq™ 2014 in San Francisco.

This Uplinq track will show you how to utilize the underlying hardware in mobile devices to bring out efficiencies and capabilities in apps and services that you may not even know are possible. The Internet of Everything has some exciting opportunities and some of our Uplinq sessions are designed to show you how you can tap into capabilities like connected lighting or how to integrate with the DSP to create even more amazing multimedia experiences. Sessions will include live demos, panel discussions, third-party presentations, and deeper insights into the world of hardware and software.

At Uplinq, you’ll have the chance to uncover the best approaches and opportunities in software and hardware integration. Plus you’ll have time to link up with industry peers and network with the experts, in the great city of San Francisco. It’s another kind of integration – work hard/play hard, right? Be sure to register, so you don’t miss out and don’t forget that Qualcomm registered developers get 50% off of conference registration.
