For developers interested in building on #hex technology
Sharing the API will enable developers to harness the unique power of #hex. The unique ability to broadcast information where there is no internet could make all the difference in certain situations – the right information at the right place at the right time could literally save a life. Yet there are numerous application scenarios where #hex is able to make a valuable difference: from Theme Parks to Museums, Hospital Navigation, Retail Centres, Education, Asset Tracking, offers in coffee shops to treasure hunts; the list goes on and on.
Our #hexology app is free and we have created it to serve our global community, yet with so many other potential applications out there we want to build relationships with teams of developers who want to collaborate with us on the challenges and opportunities we face. So we have structured our Kickstarter campaign to reward developer teams with sets of #hex beacons, access to the API and varying degrees of engagement and support. Sorted by order of price here are the developer rewards explained:
- Early Bird Developer
Get a set of 6 #hex beacons and early access to our Android and iOS API – before anyone else. Aimed at SMEs, developers and companies interested in creating user experiences with #hex – become one of our preferred beta tester developers. The aim is to manufacture and send one #hex plus the API to you before the shipment deadline, so that you can play with it as soon as possible. Your feedback will help us ensure that everything is okay, given that we have already had some successful trials we are expecting a lot of happy campers. At $360 this pledge is limited to only 12 backers, so get them early!
- Developer Partner
Get a set of 12 #hex beacons and early access to our API. Aimed at SMEs, developers and companies interested in working with #hexology to create user experiences with #hex. Our aim is to find and create collaborative relationships with teams who want to work with us to build and support a network of users. At $840 this pledge is limited to only 6 backers!
We’ve created these rewards to be supportive, realistic and the truth is, that we want to give a really great service and we won’t be able to do that if we take on too many; which is why the number of backers we are accepting is limited.
Participation in the developer program means that you get to steer the development of the API around your needs, so we are looking for a conversation with you to ensure that you are getting the most out of the #hex technology. More than a focus group, the Developer Partner category is about deep-level collaborative interaction. We realise that it won’t just happen straight away, at first you’ll need some time to work with the technology and then over time things will get interesting. If you are a part of a group of individuals you can club together to pay the pledge and there should be enough hexes in the reward to share them. Yet for those with a more corporate profile we promise discretion, confidentiality and above all professionalism.
