Intel aids software developers

Intel Corp.'s Software and Solutions Group recently announced the creation of the Intel Software Network, a collection of software development products, tools, training and expert advice designed to help software developers bring more innovative products to market even faster on Intel platforms.

"Whether developing software for mobile, home, office or enterprise computing, the Intel Software Network is a portfolio of resources for the developer to gain access to information about Intel platforms and technologies,&quot explained Renee James, VP and GM of Intel's Software and Solutions Group. "With new technologies emerging, such as multi-core processors, the network provides developers with an insider's view of how to structure their products to gain the most performance and value out of Intel platforms."

Included in the network are Intel Mobile Platform Software Developer Kit (SDK), Intel Software Developer Dispatch, Multi-core Readiness Program, Enterprise Developer Program and Intel Software College courses.

The Intel Mobile Platform SDK includes a run-time software library that simplifies the development of applications for laptops and handheld devices that can sense mobile device status and adapt to accommodate power, connectivity and bandwidth usage. This SDK is available for $1,495.

The Multi-core Readiness Program promises to help developers prepare their applications for multi-core computing by providing them with Intel Threading Tools and thousands of multi-core development platforms for Intel architecture-based clients and servers.

Meanwhile, the Intel Software Developer Dispatch with CDs and DVDs contains software tools and in-depth technical content to help developers design and architect applications that extract the maximum benefit from Intel technologies and platforms. This is released and shipped to subscribers approximately once per quarter.

The Enterprise Developer Program that provides software resources tailored to the enterprise developer's needs, including lab-access to the latest Intel Itanium 2 and Intel Xeon processor-based platforms in clusters, grid and SMP configurations. Development teams can work directly with Intel application engineers to assist them in migrating to 64bit or to optimize their applications and use the myriad Intel tools, from threading tools to compilers.

Intel Software College courses include the Threading Training Program curriculum with expert instructors teaching basic and advanced threading techniques.

There is no cost to join the Intel Software Network.
