The Zebra team had a very busy time at the AT&T Developer Summit 2017 in Las Vegas, January 3-4. And I’m not just talking about listening to keynote speaker Joseph Gordon Levitt or hearing BLINK-182 play.



attdev2.jpgBeing a B2B company, Zebra isn’t always a household name. But once developers see our products, tools, and how they are used lightbulbs start going off. Some users are still connecting the dots that Zebra isn’t just a printer or scanner company. That’s why events like the AT&T Developer Summit, with over 1800 attendees, are so impactful for us.


This event had a young crowd full of innovative minds breaking into the Enterprise Software space. We were able to have great conversations about how we can collaborate to build solutions that provide businesses with real-time visibility into their operations, enabling them to take smarter actions and transform their organization.


‘Collaboration’ was a key word at this event and this was very evident in AT&T’s new IoT solution which pulls together tools from big name brands like Amazon Web Services and ARM. This makes the toolset very attractive for the developers as they are either already familiar with their offerings or have trust in those companies.


Developers also saw value in the visibility solutions & toolsets Zebra offered. Mobility DNA and Link-OS both provide common architectures to streamline development and help give physical assets a digital voice.


We are now excited to continue the conversation and collaboration with many of these same people at Zebra APPFORUM in Las Vegas, May 9-11.

Android Marshmallow and Nougat represent a concerted effort from Google to cater for the Enterprise with greater security and the ability to manage ruggedized devices such as those offered by Zebra.  Understandably Marshmallow & Nougat also expose a slew of new functionality primarily aimed at consumers giving them more responsibility and power such as run time permissions and multi-window features. Zebra has already started releasing Marshmallow devices.

In this DEV { TALK } we will cover:

  • The considerations for a Zebra developer targeting these new Marshmallow devices (TC51, TC75X and more to come)
  • Demonstrate some of the real value-adds of Google’s Enterprise offering (formally Android For Work)
  • Explore upcoming considerations that the new features of Android Nougat bring to the table



Thank you to all who attended. Please find the video and the slides for the presentation attached.



Zebra will be back at Droidcon Italy, 6-7 April 2017 in Turin, as a Silver Sponsor. Come hear Zebra Developer Evangelist, Pietro Maggi, talk about how to achieve Enterprise-class security with Android or visit us at our booth.



Pietro's session is titled Android Security, an Enterprise Perspective: Debunking Android Security Myths with Data. In this talk he will review hot topics for European Corporations in the process of adopting Android as COSU (Corporate-owned, single-use) devices. He will cover how features introduced in Android 6.0, Google Mobile Services and third party extensions collaborate to provide state of the art solutions to the market. Attend to learn specifically what threats are real, why security updates are critical for the Enterprise market, and best practices for Security and the Life Cycle of Android devices.


We hope to see you there.
