Developing software is like creating any other product —there are always hidden costs and unexpected delays. We can’t help with the unexpected delays, except to offer the advice: pad your timeline and then pad it again. But we can help ease the cost of development with free tools for developers.
We’ve rounded up three of the many free tools from Intel available to software developers.
Intel has a range of software development kits for most anyone. If you’re interested in building an app for the Intel AppUp® center, have a look at the Intel AppUp® Developer SDK. It provides APIs for applications sold in the Intel AppUp® center. These APIs include multiple device digital rights management, crash reporting, instrumentation, and in-app purchase capabilities.
Intel® Perceptual Computing will be releasing its 2013 SDK shortly. Download the Intel Perceptual Computing SDK and you’ll soon be on the fast path to creating the next generation of immersive, engaging, innovative software applications that incorporate close-range tracking, speech recognition, face analysis, and 2-D/3-D object tracking on Intel® Core™ processor-powered Ultrabook™ devices and PCs.
