As we, SmartThings, grow we are continually evaluating our priorities as a company. Since the beginning of this year, we’ve been going through that process and seeing what is important for SmartThings to be successful in 2017. As part of this new year we are working on some amazing new features and product, some of which directly impact developers. I personally am very excited about these initiatives. If you have joined the past few developer calls these are the initiatives I keep saying we “can’t talk about”. Part of prioritization and new projects is making tough decisions regarding current processes that we have not done a good job of supporting or do not lend themselves to making our vision a reality.
In order to keep focus on these new and exciting initiatives, we are diverting focus from some of our processes that haven’t been getting much love lately, so we can more intensely focus on making a great developer platform for all of us! Starting today, 03/02/2017, we will temporarily be suspending the review of community submitted code (both future and pending submissions) and conducting monthly developer calls. Doing this allows us to focus on executing our vision for the future of development on SmartThings.
We thank you for your patience as we work hard in the background to bring you new and exciting features and tools!
On that note, please be sure to join us at the Samsung Developer Conference. We’ll be really excited to see you there!
