Seven Steps to Software Security

If you weren’t at Samsung’s developer event in London on 18 June, and don’t say we didn’t warn you, then you missed the inside track from Justin Hong, the lead for the bada development platform, who popped in from Korea.

We report significant excitement in the audience as he announced that the operating system might soon be put into other devices. Before then, he’s promising a bunch of new bada smartphones to go with the Samsung Wave later this year.

The event was packed out with developers who got the lowdown on how build apps using bada from the Samsung experts who were in town for the day. Also they learnt about the bada app certification process and the new app store for Wave users, as Samsung sets up a developer ecosystem to rival Apple iOS 4 and Google Android.

This was all couched against the backdrop of the bada developer challenge - which you can enter right here at your leisure. If that tickles your fancy then, as we reported last week, the first release of the bada SDK is available to download. So if you missed out on the day, you can still get stuck in. ®
