Ford Developer Conference in June
Ford Developer Conference 2014 - Announced!
As part of an ongoing effort to remain the leader in the connected car experience, Ford is announcing the first ever Ford Developer's Conference. The conference is the first of its kind in the automotive industry and will be held in conjunction with the Further with Ford event happening in Dearborn, Mich. in September.

The Dearborn conference will serve as a platform for innovative third party developers to learn about and experience the next-generation Ford SYNC® Applink 2.0, the related application programming interface (API) tools and the new SDK which is currently in beta testing. The newly updated platform is the easiest way for developers to connect driver’s smartphone apps to Ford SYNC for a convenient, hands-free in-car experience. The recent integration of technology and app development tools from connectivity startup Livio makes AppLink better than ever for developers and users.

This will be the first event of its kind to bring together mobile app developers and automotive industry experts in a familiar conference setting offering both technical and business related tracks to discuss in-vehicle connectivity.
App developers will be able to attend sessions led by Ford Developer Program leaders and current AppLink partners to gain valuable insight in to such items as:
  • Development and validation of AppLink apps
  • Best uses for AppLink APIs
  • Accessing vehicle data to create compelling app features
  • Global AppLink opportunities
  • …and more
