If you're an Australian app developer, you're currently hamstrung if you want to develop for Android. But Google's loss could be Samsung's gain, with the Korean company holding developer days for their new Bada operating system.
Samsung are holding Bada developer days in both Sydney and Brisbane next month. The Brisbane event will take place at the Brisbane Hilton Hotel on August 2, while the Sydney event is on August 4 at the National Maritime Museum.
As with all new mobile OS platforms, there's a developer challenge with prize money to win, plus Samsung are giving away a 3DTV each day.
Both days are free, although you'll need to register your attendance.
