Operator APIs -- What developers think

2,187 views

Published on

I gave this presentation at the Operator API seminar at MWC14. To some degree it is based on a global developer survey which we conducted to better understand how developers perceive the value of operator APIs and services.

You can find a blog post with more details, the slides and links to the white paper "The Value of Operator APIs for Developers" here:

  12. 12. @ManfredBo Close the gap: simple Please allow any developer to engage with the MNO platform without signing complicated agreements. Document the platform and its APIs without signup; provide test/sandbox servers and ways to test an app without signing an agreement; write example libraries and put them on github. Developers make the platform vibrant, and developers are not interested in engaging in a "partnership" model; Allow anyone to work with your APIs and then they will do so. © GSMA 2011 12
