Developers can find plenty of support and information at developer.palm.com. This portal provides access to everything that a developer might need to build webOS applications, including access to the SDK, all development tools, and documentation and training materials.

The site also provides application-signing services and access to the Application Catalog, an app store that is published and promoted with every webOS device.
