The Plug Computer as a software development kit is a unique platform for software application developers, providing open source-based development tools and documentation. With an open forum for developers to share ideas and knowledge, traditional open source application development is made accessible to a mass of base at lowest cost and greatest convenience. Applications developed can be easily deployed globally and delivered through this plugged-in-the-wall-and-play computer device.
