If you are a wireless or new media developer in Vancouver, you are invited to come to the first Orange Partner Developer Centre launch in Canada. Orange is looking to see what Vancouver developers can offer their customers in terms of apps and solutions.
The Orange Partner MeetUp, as it’s being called, will bring together all kinds of developers who are interested in becoming part of Orange’s efforts to target the Pacific Rim, Asian and local markets here in Vancouver. The event takes place on Friday, October 8th, and last from 8–11 a.m.
There will be presentations to interested developers, including how to distribute and sell your mobile apps, content and games through the Orange Application Shop. Developers will have a chance to explore partnership opportunities with Orange and test out their products on Orange devices connected to a live 2G and 3G European network. One-on-one pitch sessions for specific innovations will be available as well, but spaces are limited, so registration is essential.
The highlight of the event will be Christophe Francois, vice-president of mobile multimedia’s presentation about opportunities at Orange; Francois hopes his presentation will give developers an understanding of exactly what apps sell and what apps Orange is looking for.
The MeetUp is being held at the Guiness Tower (1055 West Hastings Street) at the lower level conference centre. The event is free, but online registration is required.
