With SDC around the corner, we have had quite a few announcements about the conference, but we also have an existing announcement on the Developer Community front. We are excited to welcome Tony Morelan, Sr. Developer Evangelist to the Samsung Developer Program team. Among many other roles, Tony will be at SDC18 sharing his tips for dev success. Here’s a bit more about Tony:
A Bit About Me
Prior to joining Samsung, my entire career had been spent as an independent Graphic Designer, specializing in all things tech.
Considering myself as a bit of an entrepreneur, when I learned about the Samsung Developer Program through a friend of mine I thought how cool, I could design and develop for Samsung’s new technology and make money still as an independent designer. What happened next totally consumed me. As I designed, developed and sold apps through the Galaxy Store, I found myself thoroughly enjoying sharing my knowledge, skills and approach with many others in the design community. I soon realized that “teaching” filled a void I didn’t know I had!
After a few phones calls and interviews, I seized the opportunity to join the Samsung Developer Program as the new Senior Developer Evangelist. What gets me most excited is now being in a position to help grow the community from the inside with all of the experience and knowledge I gained first designing and developing from the outside. With Samsung’s global reach and “Open Source” culture, amazing things are going to happen with the developer community, and I am super excited to help make it happen.
For those attending SDC18, I’ll be spending some time at the Galaxy Watch booth. Feel free to grab me for a quick chat (ask us about our SDC18 Passport activity). I am always happy share a few secrets on what worked for me as an independent designer/developer. And be sure to catch the Galaxy Apps Best of 2018 Awards Ceremony at SDC18 on November 7th. It is sure to be a great event where we announce and award the developers who made the most amazing apps in 2018!
