Google launches Chi­nese de­vel­op­ers’ web­site

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - BUSINESS - By FAN FEIFEI fan­feifei@chi­nadaily.com.cn

US tech gi­ant Google Inc launched a Chi­nese de­vel­op­ers’ web­site on Thurs­day, aim­ing to make it eas­ier for de­vel­op­ers to learn more about Google ser­vices and tech­nolo­gies, as well as de­velop new ap­pli­ca­tions.

The US com­pany said it set up the web­site — de­vel­op­ers.google.cn — es­pe­cially for Chi­nese de­vel­op­ers, which has gath­ered the tech­no­log­i­cal re­sources Google pro­vides to its global de­vel­op­ers and the lat­est tech­ni­cal in­for­ma­tion, in­clud­ing the An­droid and Fire­base plat­forms.

De­vel­op­ers could ac­cess more than 1 bil­lion An­droid users in 190 coun­tries and re­gions with the help of Google Play, the of­fi­cial app store of Google’s mo­bile plat­form, the com­pany said at its Chi­nese de­vel­op­ers’ con­fer­ence in Bei­jing on Thurs­day.

Start­ing from 2017, the Google De­vel­op­ers Agency Pro­gram will be open to China’s soft­ware de­vel­op­ment agents. It will join hands with more Chi­nese part­ners for growth bil­lion and de­vel­op­ment on the global plat­form.

Scott Beau­mont, pres­i­dent of Google Greater China, said it is en­deav­or­ing to en­cour­age mo­bile in­no­va­tion and star­tups by de­vel­op­ers, adding that Google is help­ing Chi­nese de­vel­op­ers to ex­plore high­qual­ity apps and go global with its in­no­va­tive tech­nolo­gies.

Ben Gal­braith, head of prod­uct and de­vel­oper re­la­tions at Google’s de­vel­oper prod­uct group, said: “I am very glad to see that Chi­nese de­vel­op­ers have be­come an in­dis­pens­able part of the global de­vel­op­ers’ com­mu­nity.”

He added that Google is spar­ing no ef­forts to pro­vide di­verse in­no­va­tive plat­forms for de­vel­op­ers, such as Fire­base, its vir­tual re­al­ity plat­form Day­dream and open source plat­form Ten­sorFlow.
