The Intel Developer Forum is back! It is the leading forum for anyone using Intel Architecture or Intel technologies, and will be held in San Francisco on the 10th - 12th of September. This year, it’s more technical than ever.

There’s a huge amount going on throughout the week, and you can see a full rundown of what’s going on by looking through the event schedule. Readers of this blog are no doubt more interested in the software side of technology, so here are just a few events over the course IDF 2013 that focus on the future of mobile, software, and cross-platform technologies:
