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.
