MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwire - Oct 19, 2012) - Appcelerator®, the leading mobile platform, and the China Software Developer Network (CSDN), the largest developer community in China, today announced a strategic partnership to build the next-generation mobile platform for China's mobile market, based on Appcelerator Titanium and Appcelerator Cloud Services (ACS). With 24 million registered users, CSDN is the largest community for IT professionals in China. CSDN tapped Appcelerator for its cross-platform capabilities and agile cloud services.
"We believe this partnership will deliver huge benefits to China's mobile developer community, as Appcelerator provides a powerful platform to increase productivity and effectiveness," said Tao Jiang, founder of CSDN and Programmer magazine. "Our collaboration with Appcelerator enables us to offer comprehensive mobile services for China's massive community of developers."
While China developers have leveraged Titanium on their own for years, CSDN decided to formally partner with Appcelerator after CSDN member developers reported consistent, significant reductions in development time and costs when developing mobile applications on Titanium. CSDN also sees tremendous value in ACS that integrates services such as push notifications, user logins, photo uploads, check-ins, and status updates easily into apps. Tasks that usually require server programming or tedious integration with multiple SDKs are performed through one simple interface. The ACS Virtual Private Cloud enables enterprises to deploy dedicated, on-demand server resources for all ACS features along with secure connections to their corporate data center without purchasing or administering their own infrastructure.
"We're actively empowering developers to transform the mobile landscape around the world. Whether they're designing for the consumer or the enterprise, we want to give them a platform to efficiently design rich, user-friendly native apps across multiple devices," said Appcelerator Chief Operating Officer, Sandeep Johri. "Collaborating with CSDN and welcoming China's mobile developers into our vibrant community marks another giant step forward."
