After highly successful conferences in Amsterdam, San Francisco and New York, today we announced the next North American API Strategy & Practice Conference. Themed ‘APIs Going Mainstream’ and co-organized by 3scale and API Evangelist, the next APIStrat will take place in Chicago in the fall.

Help Us Build The Apistrat Program

Submit talk proposals here before June 5, 2014 and we’ll take them into account. The earlier you submit the better, although we can’t guarantee you a slot on the program – we’ll try our best to get the best mix possible! We had incredibly compelling topics and speakers in Amsterdam. Check out this page and view video’s for the March event tracks and keynotes. We’ve not doubt this community will bring it once again.

We Expect the Chicago Program To Be Epic

“APIStrat events just keep betting better because of how engaged the community is – everyone walks away with new understanding and even more new questions – we’ve just scratched the surface,” said Steve Willmott, CEO of 3Scale. “The bigger API picture is coming into view. APIs are becoming more mainstream in the enterprise, and the consumer side of APIs as well as the Internet-of-Things are moving ahead quickly. We’re at the beginning of mass market APIs and it’s incredibly exciting.”

Six amazing speakers have been confirmed already, including John Ellis, Global Technologist and Head of the Ford Developer Program; Pratap Ranade of Kimono Labs; John Musser, of API Science (formerly founder of Programmable Web), Marten Mickos of Eucalyptus,  Ashe Dryden a rubyist and renowned diversity advocate, and Phil Windley CTO and Founder @ Kynetx.

The API Strategy & Practice conference takes the comfort, safety and inclusiveness of everyone involved in the event very seriously. All attendees are required to adhere to a code of conduct to insure that everyone is free to enjoy the collaborative environment the conference strives to foster. Additionally, the event is vendor neutral, meaning topics are not product or brand centric.
