Sammi shows-off (devices) at Orange Partner Developer Day

Last Tuesday we were fortunate enough to be invited along to Orange Partner’s London Developer Day. The event ran all day and was held at Orange’s fantastic developer centre located in the Chiswick Business Park – just across the road from Gunnersbury tube (district/overground lines). This centre gives developers the opportunity to go in and test their apps on live Orange devices, a great way to check that your app works perfectly on a variety of different handsets.

The day was divided into two parts, separated by a great lunch which also provided the perfect opportunity for developers to network. The morning consisted of several presentation sessions. These covered the opportunities Orange have for developers with their A-Store solutions – across all platforms (Symbian, Windows Mobile and Java) – how to submit your app to Orange, and also a really insightful overview on mobile UI design issues.

The afternoon was then divided into one-on-one-sessions where developers could meet with a representative from the Orange Partner team to answer any questions not covered in the presentations and discuss further opportunities for collaboration. While these meetings were taking place we were able to show the other attendees the latest Samsung devices on the Orange network and discuss the opportunities available in the Samsung Mobile Innovator program.

For those who couldn’t make it on Tuesday, Orange is running a series of webinars over the next two weeks that cover similar topics to the ones presented on the day:

These are being held in the run-up to December’s LeWeb event in Paris, where Orange is a gold sponsor and will be revealing their new on-device App Shop.

Thanks once again to Orange for a fantastic day.
