Happy New year, I hope you had an awesome break and were able to recharge, reset and prepare for the year ahead. One thing I always love doing is looking back at the tech in the year that was and how that will map out for the year that will be.
Three new Telstra APIs
Indeed, at TelstraDev we had a busy and strong wrap up to 2017 with the release of three APIs:
- Telstra Messaging API - everything you need for all your SMS/MMS needs domestically and internationally.
- Event Detection - enables mobile network level authentication and events for subscribers.
- Programmable Network API - if there was one Devops platform to rule them all, then this would be the one platform that binds them. This API-driven platform connects to public clouds and data centres and the connections between.
In the final days of 2017, we also pushed the 20th repo to the Telstra github, with SDKs covering languages like Ruby, Python, PHP, .Net2 and Node for The Programmable Network API’s and the Telstra Messaging API. For all our SDK’s, Sample Apps and more check out our github.
What's to come in the New Year
Our developer portal has undergone a bunch of changes since the initial launch with lots more to come, including Tokenised Credit Card options to make purchasing PAYG plans easier and faster than ever before.
As we move into the new year, there's some exciting developer events to look forward to as well. Plus, we heard you all liked hackathons, so stay tuned for more on that soon! Last year, we were able to get along to some awesome meetups and chat all things tech at places like The Web Meetup, Brisbane iOT, Brisbane Ruby, Junior Developer Meetup, and Startcon.
And last but not least, we'll be adding to our TelstraDev stickers collection to complement our growing API catalogue, as well as releasing some cool swag and extra special T-Shirts.
That’s about it for now and remember as always, May the source be with you...
