AT&T Developer Program

As the longest running carrier developer program and the one rated best by Evans Data Corporation for the past five years, the AT&T Developer Program is born from the company’s commitment to innovation and third-party development. To encourage even more developer interaction and innovation, AT&T opened its third Foundry location in Palo Alto last month, joining others in Tel Aviv and Plano. The AT&T Foundry is one part of AT&T’s overall innovation strategy that aims to accelerate technology development by collaborating with third party developers, venture capitalists and technology providers – sometimes by taking lead on a project, other times by contributing expertise, connections and resources to help developers bring an idea to reality.
