August 26, 2008 by SGE
Singapore, 22nd August 2008 – Local web startup Widgeous (http://widgeo.us) launches their Developer Network – also known as the Widgeous DevNet – today with the aim of increasing engagement efforts with the international developer community.
Featuring consolidated feeds from a recently integrated forum and their blog, the Widgeous DevNet (http://widgeo.us/devnet) comes equipped with a getting started guide and sample codes to help interested developers have a go at creating applications that enable users to interact across multiple communications channels. In addition to just technical resources, a job board for Widgeous Developers will also be integrated into the DevNet for companies sourcing for developers who are experienced at integrating and building applications with the Widgeous platform.
The DevNet plays a critical role in the development of their ecosystem which involves application developers, web content and services consumers as well as business entities coming together. With applications using Widgeous as a key communications platform, more users will gain the benefit of being able to interact with their applications regardless of where they are.
In line with their goal of increasing developer engagement, Widgeous is also running a hackathon (http://widgeo.us/hackathon) lasting till the end of September 2008. Developers are encouraged to build creative and useful applications that fully utilize the Widgeous cross-channel capabilities.
Widgeous made their debut appearance in the local development scene earlier in the year when they presented their initial version of the platform at Barcamp Singapore on the 25th May 2008. They have since developed several in-house applications and are slated to make several new releases in the next few weeks.
