API strategy & practice conference in NYC – Are you going?

Alright, I am sure you have heard this again and again but it’s worth saying it one more time. The first ever API strategy & practice conference is going be in NYC on Feb 21, 22 (http://www.apistrategyconference.com/). If you are just finding this out, it might be way too late for you to get in (But I will tweet anything interesting happening from inside :) ).  There are 72 companies that are confirmed to participate and sending their API whiz kids, gurus, learners, teachers, procrastinators there to make a difference. Intel is proud to be a Gold sponsor to this event.

Yes, Intel. Not only does Intel do software, but they do it really well too. We have an outstanding API Manager that we released recently which will be showcased there. If you happen to attend this, please stop by my 2 speaking sessions/ panels. 

Day 1: 2:20-3:30 – Track 3: API Security and Scalability

As APIs gain adoption they become ever more critical gateways to a company’s core business – ensuring access is secure and scalable are mission critical for your business. Presentations include:

  1. Paul Madsen (@PingIdentity) of  Ping Identity
  2. Mark O’Neil (@TheMarkONeill) of Vordel
  3. Travis Reeder (@treeder) of Iron.io
  4. Andy Thurai (@AndyThurai) of Intel
  5. Discussion panel on the challenges and solutions for API Security and Scalability

Day 2: 11.00-12.10 – Track 1: Mobile

APIs and Mobile are symbiotic – each driving the other with a good API strategy arguably key to a good Mobile Strategy. Presentations include: 

  1. Andy Thurai (@AndyThurai) of Intel
  2. Max Katz (@maxkatz) of Tiggzi
  3. Marc Weil (@marcweil) of Cloudmine

3Scale and Kin Lane did an amazing job of putting this together again (first time was cancelled thanks to hurricane Sandy). Hope to see you all there. Don’t forget to stop by our booth. You will get a chance to see me :) , and win some goodies if you stop by and make your presence known, but more importantly you will get to learn about Intel API Manager.

Looking forward to seeing you all there.
