Orange Poland and Poland's capital city, Warsaw, announced the winner of their first joint developer Hack-a-Thon event, which earned submissions from more than 70 developers across Europe to develop new and innovative applications on Orange's Open Middleware 2.0 platform. For the purpose of this contest, organizers used Oracle Communications Services Gatekeeper and Oracle Communications Converged Application Server. The winner will attend Oracle OpenWorld and JavaOne in San Francisco, September 22-26.
•Orange Poland today announced that Piotr Miedzik and Michal Cieszko won the Orange Poland Hack-a-Thon for their "Green your Office with Orange" application, which enables automatic management of electrical power. The contest invited programmers to create new, compelling applications using Orange's open application programming interface (API), open data exposed by the city of Warsaw and open data available on the Internet through Oracle Communications Services Gatekeeper and Oracle Communications Converged Application Server. •Orange Poland is part of France Telecom, the largest telecommunications group in Central Europe and the only operator in the region to offer comprehensive fixed telephony, Internet and data transmission services. The company was interested in attracting new third-party developers to build compelling mobile applications on its Open Middleware 2.0 platform, which integrates resources from government, Internet, lifestyle and communications through an API. •Oracle, Orange Poland and the city of Warsaw developed the Hack-a-Thon to connect Orange Poland's Open Middleware 2.0 platform to the developer community and encourage mobile innovation. Contestants were encouraged to develop applications using resources from the Orange network -- such as location services, presence, subscriber data, billing or charging policy -- as well as integrate those with other external resources -- such as weather, transit schedules, traffic or financial data and open data exposed by the city of Warsaw. •The winning "Green your Office with Orange" application's control layer can be used to manage smart home environments -- for example, remotely shutting off lights, controlling heat or air conditioning, or monitoring security systems -- by sending messages through the network APIs.
