You may have heard about WAC apps, an initiative that enables developers to create and distribute applications based on HTML5 technology with the addition of mobile specific functionality. However, in this talk, we are going to address a different topic: the WAC Network APIs WAC has been developing a standard set of APIs that allow developers to leverage mobile operator backends for features such as in-application billing, location or messaging. The first one of these to hit the market is the in-app billing API, currently launched in Beta phase. These APIs leverage industry standards, like GSMA OneAPI, and work across different operators and mobile platforms, from Android to pure HTML5 apps on the web.
This session aims to give an overview about WAC, introducing the purpose of the Network APIs project, explain the technical details about how to use the APIs and discuss with you the future plans for the platform.
