Empowering Developers - MWC 2010


Published on

Some slides I presented at MWC 2010 in the Innovation and Fragmentation stream, on behalf of O2 Litmus, although this is my own interpretation, not the official O2 line per se.

This presentation is aimed at operator folk generally, not just the API/dev-community folks, so it's a bit basic.
