ThoughtWorks is a global software consultancy, that has been solving complex problems with technology for  25+ years now. From our extensive experience in developing software, we pioneered open-source products that support development teams to create better software.

Imagine you could extend the functionality of your car in a similar way you can extend the functionality of your smartphone: You could easily download and install applications on demand, without going to a workshop, just while you drive. Building functionality like this combines the challenges of two worlds – the embedded and the web world. In this talk we share our experiences and thoughts tackling challenges we encountered building platforms for our automotive clients.
