Intel Corporation, together with its partners int@j and AE-ReSolutions has started a series of seminars designed to spread awareness about Intel’s developer services within Jordan’s software development community.

The seminars are part of an ongoing collaboration between Intel and AE-resolutions, where the latter has been trained to help regional developers optimise their software applications to work with Intel’s state of the art computing platforms. In attendance at the first seminar were independent software manufacturers, corporate developers and representatives of Jordan’s education sector.

“Intel’s developer services allow software makers to use Intel's latest technologies and resources to enhance the transfer of knowledge, improve their products and enlarge their market,” said Toni Prince, Intel’s business development manager for Telecommunications and ISPs.

“As the software industry grows in the Middle East, it has become essential for us to collaborate with regional players to guarantee that all developers are aware of the hands on services, training and support that we can provide to them in order to ensure that their products are ready to run on the latest and most advanced computing platforms of the region. By working with AE-ReSolutions, we can now help local developers optimise their applications for the Intel platform,” Prince added.

The companies have also organised a series of workshops situated at the Intel I-lab at the Jordan University, where developers are able to experiment in depth with Intel’s software tools such as compilers and tuning analysers, using the different Intel platforms available (Pentium 4, Intel Xeon and Intel Itanium).
“Jordan’s position as a regional centre for software development is strengthening quickly,” said Ra’ed Bilbessi, CEO of int@j, “Today’s event proves yet again the potential that the Jordanian ICT market represents in the eyes of regional and international players. int@j will continue to support such activities that help foster our local development industry and give our developers access to the latest technologies, services and initiatives.”
As part of its collaboration with Intel, AE-ReSolutions, will allocate staff to work with developers on testing and porting their applications onto the latest Intel computing platforms. Intel’s Early Access Program also entitles developers to lease state of the art computers as test machines on a yearly basis.
“Initiatives such as Intel’s developer services program are highly needed in this fast moving industry,” said Mofeed Qaffaf Business Development Manager, AE-ReSolutions, “In order to sell their products, regional developers need to ensure that these are enabled to work with the latest and greatest technologies. Intel’s developer services program gives local developers access to resources and equipment that they would have not necessarily been able to afford on their own.”

More events targeting the developer community are due to be held in Lebanon, Egypt, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates soon.
