Orange Code Camp Will Have Around 450 Mobile Developers
Posted on 19-Aug-2005 23:43. | Tags Filed under: News.

Mobile operator Orange expects over 450 delegates to attend its third Code Camp event. The Code Camp will bring together mobile application developers, games publishers, content providers, device manufacturers and operating systems companies from all over the world, for 72 hours of workshops, seminars, networking and testing.

As with the previous events in Europe and the US, Code Camp Opio has been put together in order to stimulate the creation of new and exciting applications for a variety of different mobile phone operating systems. Those applications selected will then appear in the Orange internal product catalogue for a possible distribution to over 56 million customers in 16 countries. Products that have been successful to date include travel, personal productivity, vehicle tracking, salesforce automation and location-based applications.

The event will take place in the South of France at the Club Med resort in Opio and will run from the 17 19 October. It will be comprised of over seventy sessions including technical tutorials, workshops, commercial seminars and open discussions. Delegates will be able to test their products in the developer centre, use the technical expertise on-site or simply talk to Orange about bringing their applications to market.

Code Camp Opio will have increased emphasis on the commercial side of developing applications for Orange and delegates will hear more about the mobile application and content requirements in the specific markets in which Orange operates. They will also gain a greater understanding of Orange customers in terms of who they are and what they want as well as requirements for personalisation including ringtones, music, video, games and other multi-media content.

Attendees will gain valuable insight into the strategies of Orange and France Telecom and will be given the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the various technology standards deployed by Orange such as GSM, GPRS, 3G, EDGE and Wi-Fi.

Gold sponsorship support of the event will be given by industry partners Symbian, Sony Ericsson and UIQ Technology. Silver Sponsors include Texas Instruments, Microsoft, Palm and Gemplus
