Last Wednesday, in District C, BlueVia ran a special workshop for the winners of OpenApp 2012. BlueVia’s team has been supporting OpenApp since the first edition of the contest and it is always great to meet up with some of the best entrepreneurs from Argentina.
This year OpenApp challenged entrepreneurs, web designers and marketers to develop applications for SMEs, mobile apps and educational or entertainments applications. More than 3000 proposals were evaluated across the country and finally 15 projects have been selected.
The winners of the current edition travelled to Spain, visiting District C in Madrid and Telefonica PDI premises in Barcelona. During this visit, different activities had been planned in order to improve their innovation skills and business contacts. Innovation leaders from Telefonica introduced the latest products and as part of these activities workshops were planned about BlueVia and D2B, and the possibilities of HTML5 for development of mobile application.
Andres L. Martinez, developer program engineer at Telefonica Digital, led the workshop. Beside some insights about the NaaS & cloud strategy, communication & messaging platforms, mobile payment solutions and the new mobile operating system based on HTML5, he gathered feedback and experiences from the entrepreneurs attending the workshop.
Many of the attendees found Telefonica technologies very interesting, and we have now planned speed dating with them to figure out how to integrate the Telefonica’s solutions in their very own projects.
Once again, BlueVia had an amazing experience with OpenApp and we are looking forward the next edition.
