Large corporations are becoming more and more aware of the importance of APIs to unlock new value for their businesses. The reason why is that many organizations are setting the example by creating platforms from their existing assets, and enabling new distribution and revenue channels.

We are getting close to the event date and we are nailing down all the details for what we hope is going to be a great conference. Here’s an update and more to come next week! Schedule The program for the API Strategy & Practice Conference can now be found at the event website: http://www. apistrategyconference. com/2013SF/schedule. php We are working hard on filling the gaps and we will be announcing more sessions in the next few days. Stay tuned! 429 Stage Due to the high number of talk submissions we received in the first edition of the Apistrat held in New York City, we came up with the idea of the 429- Too many requests- Stage. It ended up being an open mic area where we were able to share experiences in a more informal but still very rich way, so we have decided to bring it to our second edition as well. Those of you who would like to give a 15 minute presentation about whatever API related topic you like, please submit your ideas here and we’ll try to get back to you as soon as possible with a time slot. Unlike the New York event, this time the 429 Stage will be an open area next to the expo space, aiming to make it more appealing to the audience.
Mobile Apps have become critical to businesses, large and small - reaching customers in new ways, creating new experiences and forming a key part of online presence. Creating and maintaining great Apps is still hard however and involves a complex combination of APIs, SDKs, Backend Resources and Development Tools. This session brings together four players with different takes on how to make this development easy and deliver great apps. The sessions speakers are: Max Katz Max Katz heads Developer Relations for Appery. io, a cloud-based mobile app platform. He loves trying out new and cool REST APIs in mobile apps. Max is the author of two books “Practical RichFaces” (Apress 2008, 2011), and is a frequent speaker at developer conferences.

The APIStrat event is now just around the corner and we're pleased to announce the preliminary program so you cans start planning which sessions to head for! There are number of slots still to be announced and we'll be announcing those over the next week or two. We're looking forward to an awesome event with great presentations and discussions. Learn all the essentials of how to run and use APIs from Design to Marketing, Scalability to Mashups. The event will also feature: A live podcast show by Traffic & Weather. An expo and hack zone with comfortable lounge arrangements to chat, network and hack away. An open mic 429 stage in the expo area for additional talks and demos. It will take place in the Parc55 hotel in the center of San Francisco - tickets are selling fast so grab yours while you still can!
If you don't listen to John Sheehan and Steve Marxs' semi-regular "state of the API world" podcasts you don't know your APIs. So we're excited to announce that Traffic & Weather is coming live to @apistrat with a show on the main-stage tackling the thorniest urgent issues in the API Space from the previous few weeks. No API or API topic is safe from discussion and analysis - check out a few episodes to warm up: "I think they should call this Unicorn" "Unknown if he's a Ferrari lover" No word yet on audience participation, but a studio audience will get the first take of the raw unedited version!
