We have the conferences must-haves you expect, but we added SpeedHack and and more to provide an outstanding experience.
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) April 15, 2015
The APIDays and API Strategy & Practice conference today announced the final program for the upcoming “For a Web of APIs” event in Berlin at the Humboldt Carre, April 24-25, 2015. The program includes keynotes, from Google, The Guardian, Coca-Cola, SmartBear, and Shapeways; panel discussions and fireside chats, and three parallel deep-dive tracks. A final list of all the speakers and related details is available on the speakers section here.
The APIDays and API Strategy & Practice conference also features a special format hackathon called SpeedHack. Compressed into three hours with specially defined API challenges presented by SpeedHack sponsors including Twitter, Google, Twilio, Algolia, APIdaze, Context.IO, Chronofy, Stamplay, and streamdata.io.
A Birds of a Feather session will be held on April 23rd, the evening before the main conference opens. This event provides attendees an informal setting to discuss “all things API” before things get rolling in the sessions. In the past, these sessions have provided useful insight into what’s going on with APIs and has influenced content and topics for future events.
“We are very excited about the Berlin program. We’re covering all the things you’d expect on APIs in sessions, but we’re offering other formats too,” said Steve Willmott, CEO of 3scale and co-organizer of APIStrat. “We have the conference must-haves you expect, but we added SpeedHack and the Birds of a Feather, as well to provide all conference attendees with an outstanding experience.”
Finally, there will also be a special hardware presentation of API technology in action by Foodpairing®. They will “demo” their device that uses APIs to mix cocktails. Every attendee will have the opportunity to “invoke” these APIs as part of the session package in the sponsor exhibit area.
Register for the event here. Developers interested in the developer track get a special discount, and participation in the SpeedHack is free of charge.
