Chinese tech giant Huawei will invest $220 million to support developers in its ecosystem this year with the aim of bringing the number to 3 million.
Zhang Shunmao, senior vice president of Huawei, revealed the plan at a developer conference pre-communication session on March 25, adding that Huawei's ecosystem currently has 2.03 million developers, including more than 1 million cloud developers.
Huawei launched a program to support developers in 2015, aiming to provide targeted services and support resources.
In 2019, Huawei upgraded the program and announced that it will invest $1.5 billion over the next five years to cultivate 5 million developers worldwide.
Huawei will hold the 2021 Huawei Developer Conference from April 24-26, with the main venue in Shenzhen and more than 70 sub venues around the world to share Huawei's latest innovations in ICT technology.
Zhang said the conference will showcase six innovative technologies and products, including artificial intelligence, database, cloud-native, multi-party trusted computing, operating systems, and intelligent development tools.
