As Intel reaches out to the global software developer community, we aspire to deliver value and opportunity through our world-class One Developer Experience (ODX). From an online perspective, ODX means a single-sign-on to our resources, a single taxonomy across our programs, easy access to our content, tools and trusted support, and a true sense of excitement about what you can build, test, and deliver with the combination of Intel® hardware, software, and the valuable resources and experiences gained from Intel’s developer programs.

Customer Satisfaction 

A key aspect of delivering an excellent developer experience is paying attention to developers’ needs as customers. Satisfaction surveys tell us a lot about how our community experiences work.  For example, developers can react strongly to the end-of-life (EOL) of a software tool they know and love. We haven’t always handled the EOL communication well in the past, and the feedback we received has made us much more aware and sensitive to developers’ needs as we plan and manage software EOL processes. 

Happily, we do get a lot of positive feedback on the developer resources and programs we deliver through the Intel® Developer Zone:   

IoT developers appreciate pre-built open source reference implementations they can use to deploy their own IoT solutions, developer-ready hardware kits, software tools and integrated development environments (IDEs), and training webinars, videos and product documentation. 

AI developers learn, develop, share and teach in the Intel® AI Developer Program, take numerous courses and even receive a certificate of completion for our course AI From the Data Center to the Edge – An Optimized Path Using Intel® Architecture

Game developers can view technical sessions from the 2019 Game Developer Conference, get free downloads of Intel® Graphics Performance Analyzers, and join the Intel® Game Dev Program to Get Ready, Get Noticed and Get Big. 

All developers can explore the myriad of resources and programs available in IoT, AI, gaming, parallel programming, automated driving, big data & analytics, industrial automation, network transformation, digital retail, smart home, and more

Access Intel® Hardware via the Cloud

One of the most valued resources available on the Intel Developer Zone is cloud access to hardware. Professional developers as well as university researchers, students and professors can get free access to test, evaluate, benchmark, practice, research, and develop on the latest Intel® platforms. A broad variety of infrastructure and platform services are available for AI, high-performance computing (HPC) and IoT development. 

Get Intel® Software Development Tools 

From the Intel® Distribution of OpenVINO™ toolkit to Intel® System Studio, Intel® Parallel Studio XE, the Intel® Distribution of Python* and more, the Intel Software Development Tools page offers tools and developer programs for system and IoT solutions, enterprise and high-performance computing, game development, web and media services, and more. 

Explore our Documentation

Find answers to questions about Intel® software product features and capabilities at the Intel Developer Zone’s documentation page. Select the tool, hardware, middleware, or programming language that you are looking for, and get the facts about Intel® product suites, tools, libraries, APIs and SDKs, programming languages, hardware & developer kits, operating systems, middleware, cloud, analytics, frameworks, and device management.

Get Support

The Intel Developer Zone gives you online access to three types of support:   

Get Help can get you started with software downloads, product licensing and registration, and general site issues.  

Forums can connect you with software development products, platform and technology discussions in compilers, performance libraries, virtualization, many-integrated-core architecture, IoT, AI, Intel® Software Guard Extensions, modern code for parallel processing, and many other topics. 

Priority Support can assist you through the Online Service Center for your Intel® software development products.  You can submit questions, problems, and other technical support issues, and you can monitor previously submitted issues. 

Consult our Experts 

Intel® Software Innovators demonstrate ingenuity, experimentation, and forward thinking that inspires the greater developer community. This Intel program is for developers who have shown exceptional technical expertise, forward-thinking innovation, and a talent for sharing knowledge within their technical community.
