Samsung's ARTIK platform being relatively new to the developer community dominated by the likes of Arduino, Raspberry PI, Beaglebone,etc hasn't been the first choice for developers to work on for their projects. Samsung, in order to improve the reputation of its Ecosystem, have been constantly organizing various programs to make developers familiar with ARTIK.
Recently on the 30th of March, Samsung's ARTIK Ecosystem team organized a hands-on ARKTIK workshop in New York City hosted by SamsungNEXT. The event brought together 28 developers who participated participating to explore the capabilities of the ARTIK ecosystem. Wei Xiao was the guide for the workshop which featured the use of the ARTIK 520 modue mounted on a KITRA board.
Dan Gross, Director of Developer Support for the Samsung ARTIK Ecosystem team said-
Although the ARTIK platform supports countless uses and capabilities, this was a fun and practical way to connect some of the technologies ARTIK supports in a very relevant IoT example. Attendees were amazed how much we accomplished in such a short amount of time.
