Milestone Systems has launched a new ‘Developer Champion’ which will aim to foster inspiration and create valuable relationships in the developer community. Set to start this month, the company will select five international technology professionals from the Milestone Developer Community, who will then be the first to carry the title of Developer Champion.
Software developers use the Milestone Integration Platform SDK to develop applications and capabilities that plug in to the XProtect VMS product family. Milestone already offers the Milestone Developer Forum, where developers can ask questions and share ideas while another initiative, Milestone Developer Conference, enables developers to co-create video management solutions, and the Milestone Community Kickstarter Contest awards the very best ideas in the Milestone Developer Community.
Milestone’s People First approach is carried over to the work with the Developer Community by recognising and awarding individual contributors in the ecosystem. The first five technology professionals to be awarded the title of Milestone Developer Champion are: Christian Spitzner, Bosch (Germany), Eric Bourque, Orbnet Systems (Switzerland), Michel Matta, Veertec (Lebanon), Dan Fritsch, App-Techs Corp (USA) and Dani Elias, The Boring Lab (USA).
All champions will have the opportunity for frequent contact with the Milestone Systems’ Developer Advocate to discuss and develop ideas. Champions will receive support from the initiative, as well as continued opportunities to further contribute to the Developer Community with opportunities such as speakerships, offering their advice and sharing content, videos, and solutions.
