IDF 2014 – Where There’s a Developer, There’s a Way!

A busy week at the Intel Developer Forum has just come to a close. Over the course of three (somewhat) sunny days in San Francisco, we got a chance to see what the developers, makers and creators of today’s technologies have in store for the upcoming year.

Just in case you didn’t get a chance to make it to IDF this year, we’ve pulled together some highlights from the three-day event so that you can experience a part of the action.

The event kicked off with a “bang!” as Intel CEO, Brian Krzanich, addressed the crowd for an inspiring keynote – let’s not forget that he was introduced by a digital version of Katy Perry! He went on to discuss Intel’s strategy on building out the Internet of Things, making wearable technologies a reality and continuing to push forward the mobile revolution. The keynote set the stage for the overarching theme of IDF 2014 – focusing on developers and bringing great products to market together. You can watch the complete keynote, here

A Revolutionary Device

Falling right in line with Brian’s keynote, day one of IDF ushered in a groundbreaking product announcement: the release of the world’s thinnest tablet. Dell CEO, Michael Dell, joined Krzanich to unveil the Dell Venue 8 7000 series of tablets powered by the new Intel Core M chips. No longer do you have to decide between a razor-thin laptop or an ultra-fast tablet, as consumers can get the best of both worlds in one super-mobile device.

All Your Questions – Answered

Another revolutionary event that took place during IDF came not in the form of a new device but rather, occurred on social media. Brian Krzanich and Intel President, Renée James hosted a live Q&A on Twitter, making sure that even those not physically present at the event could still get their questions answered. Using the hashtags #AskBrian and #AskRenee IDF attendees and those tuned into the event from home were able to submit questions and have them answered in real time.
