The software developer kit for the Surface tabletop computer will be made available to those attending Microsoft's Professional Developer Conference at the end of the month, reports CNet.

"Hear about the unique attributes of Microsoft Surface computing, dive into vision-based object recognition and core controls like ScatterView, and learn how the Surface SDK aligns with the multitouch developer roadmap for Windows 7", Microsoft said, advertising a session at the forthcoming event.

The software giant promises: "Attendees will receive access to the Microsoft Surface SDK".

The Surface tabletop computer is currently live in the States in AT&T retail stores, and the Harrah's casino in Las Vegas, but has yet to see wider adoption.
