I am getting ready for the Mashery, Business of APIs Conference in San Francisco tomorrow.

  • Ryan Sarver - Director of Platform at Twitter
  • Jeff Lawson - CEO and Co Founder at Twilio

That is a whole lot of API experience. I went to BAPI last year, and the talks were great and I connected with a bunch of other API experts, during the half-day event.

BAPI is from 1:00 – 5:30 at the Julia Morgan Ballroom in San Francisco. The San Francisco BAPI is the first of three events, with a New York event October 19th and a London event October 25th.

Registration is still open for all three events. I highly recommend getting to at least one of them if you can.
