...by bringing both organizations together at a joint event – we combine the great energy from both communities.
Paris (PRWEB) December 03, 2014
Today, two of the premiere API technology events announced a new joint event on the API calendar for April 23-25, 2015. The APIDays and API Strategy and Practice (APIStrat) conferences will combine to create a single joint European event in Berlin immediately following the AppsWorld Mobile Application Expo (22-23rd of April). The joint conference will feature leading keynotes, panels and in-depth sessions on both general API strategies and practical knowledge across a wide range of industry sectors. The event will also include workshops and a Speedhack code competition, as well as local support from SPHERE.IO, local organizer of the recent APIDays Berlin 2014.
“The APIDays and APIStrat conferences each aim to move leading-edge API knowledge forward – enabling great conversation on what works and a what doesn’t, so we’re excited that we can bring both organizations together at a joint event – combining the great energy from both communities.” said Steven Willmott, CEO of 3scale.
“After two years of APIDays and APIStrat events, it’s clear we share the same vision,” said Mehdi Medjaoui, Executive director of of APIDays and OAuthi.io. “Both help small and large companies understand the technical and business challenges related to APIs on their path to success in this era of rapid digital transformation. I’m glad we’re combining our efforts for this event in Berlin after our respective success last year with APIDays Berlin 2014 and APIStrat Amsterdam.”
“APIs are on the leading edge of innovation in tomorrow’s industries,” said Dirk Hörig, CEO of SPHERE.IO. “By joining forces in Berlin, we are able to bring together the brightest minds in the API space to share experience and fuel innovation in the German ecosystem. ”
The conference welcomes new speakers and a call for presentations is now open at http://apidaysberlin2015.apistrat.com/. The deadline for submissions is the 23rd of January. Tickets for the event will be on sale in early January and initial speakers and sponsors announced over the coming weeks.
