At Telstra we're embarking on a new journey to connect you, the developer, to our services. We realise the importance developers have in coming up with new innovations, in growing new businesses and by shaping the world as we all move "up the stack"

Telstra is getting closer to developers in a big way, and in some ways we've already been talking with developers for a long time through programs, such as Muru-D in fostering start-ups and our Gurrowa Labs focusing on next gen technology. Here at TelstraDev, we want to start creating a home for developers, so when you think of a Telstra service you need you can just come over here to this site and discover what's on offer at TelstraDev.

To get us, and you, started on building this Telstra developer home we've launched our new developer portal (this site) and our Messaging API which we're hoping is really valuable to you building out your ideas.

The great thing I find about this Messaging API is that it's all been built here in Australia all from Telstra. Everything from; the documentation, the API to our enterprise-grade messaging system that's connected to our mobile network. I've had the opportunity to work with some very talented engineers in the company who are behind our mobile network and messaging systems which has given me a new appreciation as to the deep expertise and reliability they build into the network. It’s really exciting to see this talent now focussing on what we can do for the developer, and I hope you see this reflected in the Messaging API.

Lastly we're open for feedback! Once you've registered we'd encourage you to tell us what you like, what sucks and what else you'd like to see from us. I assure you we will put it on our backlog, even if we don't get to them all at once.

So, please explore and discover more about our new Messaging API, and remember this is just the start. You will see a number of new products, features and documentation coming your way over the coming months as we seek to unlock Telstra's services and put them in your hands, after all this site is all about empowering developers.

Thanks,

David Freeman
