This is the first seminar in Indonesia that we know facilitating debate between modern Smartphone Operating Systems. Held in Universitas Islam Negeri (UIN) Syarif Hidayatullah, Jakarta on May 4, 2010, the seminar brought the heat between WP7, iOS, BlackBerry, and Android. Too bad there’s no representative from Symbian and Palm, that would make the debate more complete. It was fun as the speakers of each platforms are able to create a healthy debate condition, yet informative.
DyCode CEO, Andri Yadi, was involved as speaker talking about iOS. However, as a Microsoft MVP and being active Windows Phone 7 developer, he and Puja Pramudya (MVP, Device Application Development) also spoke about WP7 and has “obligation” to tell what’s the best of WP7 compared to Android and BlackBerry. The heat between iOS and Android is more seen compared to other OSes, and that reflects what happen in the real world nowadays.
Above all, it’s just for fun. Each speakers are not coming from the principals of each OSes, so there’s no formal obligation to fight for them.
