The Mercedes-Benz Mobile Android SDK (Software Development Kit) encapsulates customer data and vehicle functions needed to develop mobile applications for Mercedes Benz cars, which are enabled for Mercedes me services.
In addition, the SDK provides basic functions like registration, password-less login, vehicle assignment and service activation for all SDK app developers and thus helps them to concentrate on the main purpose and business value of the app.
For businesses and brands, the customer is king, and being able to know what makes consumers tick is a definite advantage. Converser makes this a possibility by enabling application owners to interact with their customers directly from within the app, getting a better understanding of their users and ultimately gaining the knowledge they need to maximise their appeal. Converser's API is available to developers who want to integrate this functionality with other applications.
During the first few days of this December, over 1,000 civic technologists collaborated around the world during the Sanitation Hackathon. The Hackathon's mission was simple in words, but immense in potential impact: "to tackle leading sanitation challenges." Teams of developers joined to tackle various problem statements that threaten basic livelihood across the globe. Problem statements fell into one or more of seven categories (i.e. governance, handwashing, open defecation, rural, toilets, urban, and waste water).
