This year, the three winning teams of each category presented their app at the Gala dinner attended by more than 550 guests of the Malaysia Minister of Communications with live voting. We closed the dinner by announcing the Grand Prize winner and presented the $10,000 check to the winning team – Team Hacktivist!
AT&T has a long history of innovation – going back over a century to the invention of the telephone. Events like this one are part of our effort to keep expanding on the opportunities the Internet creates.
AT&T/MCMC Developers’ Day also builds on the road that Malaysia started a number of years ago to cultivate a knowledge based economy. MCMC has created several programs and invested in education, science and technology to make that vision a reality. These polices are attracting global investment and we are proud to be part of this community.
I’m thankful to everyone who made the day a success – our talented participants, MCMC and the Malaysia government, and U.S. Ambassador Joseph Yun for his inspiring opening remarks – and looking forward to even more great things to come from the region.
