"Cobalt Networks, a leading provider of server appliances,
announced today its first Developer Network, an introductory
developer program that offers technical and co-marketing support
for developers of Linux solutions. The program offers sample
code, technical notes, software tools, an on-line discussion group,
and co-marketing programs designed to support the development of
Linux server appliances."
"Cobalt is excited to see the momentum within the developer
community to create applications specifically for the Cobalt
platform," said Mark Orr, vice president of business development
and co-founder, Cobalt Networks, Inc. "Developers are recognizing
that by 'appliantizing' their applications on Cobalt server
appliances, time to market and development time are significantly
reduced, while sales and revenue are maximized."
"Through Cobalt's Developer Network, developers are ultimately
given the ability to create solutions that take advantage of the
benefits of Linux, while hiding its complexities."
