OPPO ColorOSHack 2023
“We are extremely grateful for the support from global developers who have come with us on this journey. The intelligent products and experiences we’ve brought to users so far are just a starting point.” said Nicole Zhang, General Manager of Software Innovation Center, OPPO.
“We are now looking ahead to what comes next—working closely with global developers all over the world to create services that understand users even more deeply, and respond to their needs more intelligently.” She added.
Innovations in Development and Improved Efficiency with Pantanal Developer Services
OPPO has conducted the ColorOSHack competition yearly since 2021. This year’s competition was themed “Pantanal Service: Empowering Lives with Intelligence” and was concentrated on the Asia-Pacific area, with a concentration on three core scenarios: daily life, transportation, and entertainment.
Participants were urged to understand the ins and outs of the Pantanal Platform, construct smart services for one of three scenarios, and conceptualize scenarios and design forms of interaction to aid in the exploration of a new service format for the Asia-Pacific market.
Since its inception in July, the tournament has lasted more than 150 days, attracting more than 200 competitors from more than 50 nations and regions throughout the world.
The capabilities of the Pantanal Platform, including Aqua Dynamics, which was first introduced in ColorOS 14, provide a framework in which a service is developed based on a single template and then automatically adapted for compatibility with phones, tablets, earbuds, and automotive head units, as well as various access points such as widgets, the cover screen on a flip phone, and more.
These new tools can help developers improve their development efficiency even further. As part of a complete set of tools designed to assist developers in coming to grips with Pantanal, OPPO now offers video lessons, written guidelines, and codelabs documentation, as well as a Pantanal IDE and Pantanal development framework.
Increasing Strength of Global Innovation Fuels Steady Eco-System Expansion
OPPO ColorOSHack 2023 focused on three main scenarios and was accompanied by a package of freshly enhanced developer services. Many outstanding pieces were submitted, and 10 were chosen for the finals.
The team’s innovations addressed scenarios such as navigation, payment, social interaction, study, health, and others. The last round lasted more than three hours.
A jury comprising OPPO professionals and industry experts from the Asia-Pacific region reviewed the teams’ work in terms of app prospects and innovation and chose the top three winning teams. Each of the three will get a $1,000 reward to help with the development and execution of their products.
The Malaysian team End2End’s transportation and payment project “NavOpp” received unanimous approval from the judges and took first prize. The project is an app that supports transportation and payment services across devices.
The software, which relies on Pantanal’s context-detection capabilities, enables the smooth flow of information and services, decreasing steps and saving time on everyday commutes and business visits while also making ubiquitous services more scalable.
OPPO brought together developers from all around the world at this year’s ColorOSHack. Pantanal Developer Services reduced developers’ efforts by abstracting away the requirement to comprehend the intricate underlying technology of many devices.
Based on the open capabilities of the Pantanal Platform, OPPO ColorOS will continue to provide developers with a foundation on which to innovate and a communication platform through which they can showcase their creations, bringing developers, entrepreneurs, and startups together to develop and implement innovative solutions and bring a smarter life to 600 million ColorOS users.
