Apple opens its first Developer Centre in Southeast Asia


If you are a budding tech developer, this news might excite you. Recently, Apple opens its first Developer Centre in Southeast Asia. That said, what should you know about it?

For your information, this hub aims to supports developers from across the region with sessions, labs, and workshops. The region is a home to over 90000 apps on the App Store. That means it has a huge potential to grow into a dominant force in the future.

Moreover, Apple Developer Centre is in Singapore. That is expected given the surrounding facilities and the nation’s reputation as a highly developed country. Susan Prescott, Apple’s vice president of Worldwide Developer Relations said:

“Southeast Asia is home to many passionate developers who create exceptional apps that empower their local communities and delight customers, we are thrilled to open the Apple Developer Center Singapore in a region that has prioritised growing a competitive digital economy with highly skilled talent. This centre will be a valuable resource for developers from Singapore and its neighboring countries, enabling them to create richer experiences and more impactful apps for their customers. We can’t wait to see how this space will energise the work of our incredible developer community.”

In addition, you can expect the Apple Developer Centers to offer in-person sessions, labs, workshops, and consultations around the world. The Apple Developer Center Singapore will also offer a range of activities for developers to hone their skills and transform the design, quality, and performance of their apps across iOS, iPadOS, macOS, tvOS, visionOS, and watchOS.
