SHAKOPEE, Minn. — April 6, 2016 — RTI, a leading control and automation systems manufacturer for residential and commercial settings, has announced that the company will host its second annual DevX developers conference, April 19-21, at RTI's world headquarters in Minnesota. Available to RTI dealers, DevX 2016 will provide participants with an opportunity to expand their knowledge in using RTI's software development kit (SDK) for powerful custom automation solutions.

Featuring two tracks, DevX 2016 allows attendees to hone their SDK skillset with hands-on instruction from RTI's integration team.
