For my first post, I would like to introduce a new website: Vodafone Betavine.
This site has been created by Vodafone’s R&D department, and its main aim is to encourage the development of new innovative mobile applications. Users will be able to download applications to test, and will be encouraged to give feedback to the developers to improve the application.
The reason I am blogging about this site is because it is the first major project that I have contributed too that has been made publicly available. I am currently working for Vodafone R&D as a placement student. My placement started in June 2006, and I should be there until June 2007. Most of my placement so far has been involved with Betavine, which has greatly improved my web development skills.
Hopefully, within the next couple of months, I should be able to get round to learning Symbian C++ and write some of my own apps, which could appear on Betavine
Also, please keep checking back to the site, new applications should hopefully show up at regular intervals.
