HbbTV Developer Portal grows with first community contribution

Geneva, May 31, 2022 – We welcome the strong interest and active community involvement in the new HbbTV Developer Portal. Since its launch in March 2022, the portal has grown through further tutorials and resources such as the new section “Common mistakes to avoid”.

We are particularly happy about the first community contribution, written by Christoph Ziegler, Online Media Delivery Engineer and Software Developer at “ARD Programmdirektion”, the programming directorate coordinating the joint TV programme “Das Erste” and the joint video-on-demand service “ARD Mediathek” of the regional public-service broadcasters in Germany. The tutorial describes a simple logging utility to help developers debug HbbTV applications.

The HbbTV Association invites the users of the HbbTV Developer Portal to suggest new tutorials using the GitHub issue tracker. You are also welcome to engage in the discussions on the Stack overflow forum.
