The Intel Software and Services Group today announced the official opening of the Intel Developer Zone, a lab for digital media developers based in the Communitech Hub* in Waterloo Region. The new lab provides local developers with exciting access to Intel technology and platforms, and it underscores Intel’s longstanding commitment to Canadian innovation and the digital economy.
The new Intel Developer Zone will act as both a hardware and software centre, allowing the innovators and entrepreneurs based at the Communitech Hub to utilize Intel’s processors, mobile platforms, and software development products. It will also provide an opportunity for local developers to interact with Intel experts at the lab as well as through online forums and blogs. A seminar series is anticipated which is intended to help drive innovation and share knowledge.
“Intel has long been part of the innovative technology cluster in the Waterloo region, and we are excited to expand our presence there with the Intel Developer Zone. This marks an important Canadian addition to our global strategy of research and development,” said Graham Palmer, Canada Country Manager, Intel. “This lab will support innovative developers in the region by providing them with access to software developer tools, platforms, and expertise to enable the development of technology for the future.”
