Dedicated tech sessions to empower leading industry players

As well as the leading keynotes that developers can expect from Friday 22nd, breakout tech sessions with Huawei experts and speakers will offer more specific support for those looking to integrate with innovative technology and learn about the latest HarmonyOS and HMS Core updates. Each session will offer developers the chance to learn directly from the best, providing direct insight into the workings of Huawei and its AppGallery.
