Alibaba Cloud Launches Global Apsara Developer Community
Alibaba Cloud, the digital technology and intelligence backbone of Alibaba Group, has announced the launch of Apsara Developer Community, a new hub created to support global developers through an enhanced provision of diverse developer tools and resources. It aims to support the continuous growth of the developer community, while facilitating the further progress of the digital economy across markets.
“The developer community is an integral part of Alibaba Cloud’s ecosystem. We hope to grow together with our developers by providing the latest technologies, ecosystem resources and business collaboration opportunities,” said Selina Yuan, Vice President of Alibaba Group and President of Alibaba Cloud Intelligence International Business Unit.
New and Enhanced Community Resources, Competitions and Scholarship for Global Developers
Unveiled at Alibaba Cloud’s Global Developer Summit at Jakarta today, The Apsara Developer Community offers global developers resources and insights into the rising technology trends ranging from Web3, AI to digital intelligence. These resources include access to a slew of new development tools and latest projects, training materials and tutorials, forums and blogs, community events and competitions to showcase their application development, and other upskilling and networking opportunities.
The cloud leader also announced its latest competition, PolarDB Global Hackathon 2023, to encourage developers to explore cloud-native database innovations. From now until February 28, participants can submit their projects and winners will be awarded with a total of US$30,000 in cash prizes.
In addition, Alibaba Cloud also unveiled the Alibaba SMART Scholarship, which aims to encourage students to join the developer community with cloud-based technologies and become local digital talents. During the first year of this annual scholarship program, 20 interns from universities will be recruited to join Alibaba Cloud’s local offices to gain more field experience.
New Solution to Facilitate Superapp Development
With the rise of superapps – apps that include a range of independently developed miniapps to cater for different user requirements – Alibaba Cloud also unveiled a new solution to help developers build superapps cost-effectively and efficiently. Leveraging Alibaba Cloud’s Enterprise Mobile Application Studio (EMAS), the solution aims to enable developers to swiftly build superapps with rich platform capabilities within hours, adding competitive advantages for global organisations and enterprises.
Derived from the best practices of Alibaba’s e-commerce superapps Taobao and Tmall, the comprehensive solution provides developers with a rich ecosystem, including components for app infrastructure and business features, containers for running miniapps, and services for DevOps and operations.
“We believe our proven technologies and experience in supporting successful superapps can be beneficial for worldwide developers who are looking to create their own superapps and corresponding platform ecosystem,” said Raymond Xiao, Head of International Industry Solutions and Architecture at Alibaba Cloud Intelligence. “We can co-create more innovative technologies and solutions together with our developers, boosting further growth of the developer community.”
Alibaba Cloud is dedicated to contributing to the developer ecosystem including the open-source community. Alibaba Cloud, with over 30,000 contributors, has contributed to over 2,700 open-source projects on Github. The leading cloud provider is also a key member in various open-source communities such as Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF), The Linux Foundation and RISC-V International.
