Why?– Comviq wants to be best on the market on data, apis and producing client- side experiences – technology is part of being a ”modern price fighter”– Comviq need help from existing and new partners to improve– so hackathons, meetups etc must be a core activity– We should also build a community within Kinnevik/Tele2 internationally as well over time – so anyone is invited– Also focus of giving the developers much better financial incentives than historically – developers on a piedestal2013-01-26 -- 3
