Say Hello! to the con terra Developer Network

Christian Elfers January 13, 2016

The previously named "map.apps Developer Network" information and communication platform is expanding its focus. Renamed to the "con terra Developer Network" it now serves for all con terra products.

Since 2013, the map.apps developer network has provided assistance to a constantly growing number of developers and users. Ever since, it has provided map.apps developers with software downloads, documentation, guidelines and examples. With the forum and github repository, two important means were added that extended the scope from providing information to a collaboration and communication.

During this time, the software itself has also evolved a lot. More than ever before, map.apps is supposed to build geospatial apps for the enterprise. Its underlying architecture, REST services and JavaScript application runtime have proven to provide a resilient foundation for solutions of multiple, interconnected apps that are easy to set up, extend, operate and maintain. We came from building apps to build agile, digital geospatially enabled services with multiple touchpoints to connect infrastructure and people.

As part of this venture, we took big efforts to refactor our other products, namely security.manager, smart.finder and service.monitor, to be compliant with this approach and  to provide a seamless experience of software building block (or our beloved term of “bundles”) working together to help creating the digital service experience.

To broaden this experience also to our developer community, we will extend the scope of the developer network, with all its contents and tools, to cover all con terra products. Starting from today, the map.apps developer network is now the con terra developer network.

The team has already taken efforts to provide content for security.manager, service.monitor (incl. analytics) and smart.finder. Blog posts have started to cover topics of interest for these products. Expect these to increase. In addition, downloads will be provided, github can be used to exchange components and the forum is yours to communicate.

Exciting times. Thanks for participating!
