What an event!
First of all, let me just say that as a newbie to the API arena, I found this conference to be full of valuable information and extremely rich in content.
There were many industry-leading speakers. Jérôme Louvel, CEO of Restlet, was a speaker for the first day of the event and had wonderful turnout for his speech “Web APIs, the New Language Frontier”. He also announced the public beta of APISpark, more details are coming in another blog post!
If you missed it or are interested in reviewing the slides again, you can find them here:
The second and last day was a little less restless (pun intended – excuse me, as a non-tech person, this is probably the only one accessible to me!) Steve Sfartz, VP of Engineering at Restlet, gave his speech “How to Build your Web API”. There weren’t many developers in the room but we did get visits at our booth after the presentation and got valuable feedback and a very interesting use case to explore – thanks to Wenting Sun of Nanyang Technological University of Singapore.
Here are Steve and Wenting, using the APISpark platform on an iPad to build and study her API needs.
As a Gold Sponsor we were really happy with the way things were set up. There were some stimulating talks and positive energy throughout. Overall, a great success!
On a complete side note, breakfast was delicious and very français.
Thank you to Webshell and FaberNovel for organizing this great event.
