Yahoo Mobile Schedules First Ever Developer Conference

Yahoo has set the date for it's first ever Developer Conference for February 19th, 2015. Following on the heels of other developer conferences held by Apple, Google, Facebook, and Samsung, Yahoo similarly intends to foster it's community of developers and set the stage to release new mobile-centric products.

Yahoo recently acquired Flurry, a mobile analytics firm focusing on monetizing apps. Flurry is expected to be featured heavily at the event, and is poised to release a new set of tools to empower the Yahoo development community. A Flurry correspondent wrote on the Yahoo blog: "a suite of tools [will be announced] that will help mobile developers better understand their users and improve, grow, and monetize their apps"

With a "State of Mobile" address given by Simon Khalaf, executive at Yahoo, mobile will be likely be the primary focus at this event. 

The conference will be held for one day and is free to attend. Yahoo has not yet announced the specific location of the event, but has released that it will be held somewhere in the Bay Area. It is unclear whether or not the conference will be streamed live. Further information will be distributed through Yahoo's dedicated Developer Conference Tumblr page
