Telecom Application Developer Summit

Most of my working life has been spent building telecom applications within telcos (BT), vendors (Lucent, Cambridge Technology Partners), in my start-up Teltier (mobile presence applications), and working with many tens of telecom application developers as an independent. Based on this experience, telecom application developers exist and are grossly under-served by the telecom industry.  A […]

My Initial Take on the Telenor / Telefonica Announcement on APIs

Telefonica and Telenor made an announcement that they will be cooperating on APIs.  Here’s my initial take given the information available: As normal the press have confused apps and APIs.
