Today is a big day for Android app developers. Google launched the Android for Work DevHub, “a place for developers to keep up with Android in the workplace and engage fellow business app developers in an open forum.”
DevHub is tightly aligned with the work being done by the AppConfig Community, of which Mobileiron is a founding member. Today, the AppConfig Community has launched best practices and tools to support the use of the native app security and configuration frameworks in Android for Work.
Google states the Android for Work DevHub will help developers:
"Leverage tools and resources provided by the AppConfig Community, which established a standard that provides Android developers a simple way set up app configurations, that will have a significant impact on enterprise app developers."
Android is a key development platform for the enterprise and, with Android for Work, Google established a rich security and configuration framework for apps. Now, with best practices for Android for Work integrated into the AppConfig Community and the launch of Google’s Android for Work DevHub, Android developers have a new set of tools that will simplify and improve how they build and secure business apps.
