We want you to speak at Nordic APIs Platform Summit in Stockholm, Sweden 20-22 October. Join SoundCloud, LEGO, Kin Lane and many others on stage and take an active part in the Nordic APIs community. You will get valuable time in front of a knowledgable and influencial Nordic audience and be seen as one of the leaders of the industry.

It’s all about API Platforms

The theme of the conference is API Platforms, and we have defined what we mean with an API Platform in this blog post. In summary it is an API that is seen as critical by the organisation publishing it and allows developers to use it as a building block in their creations.

We would love it if you could share your own stories from the trenches, sharing real experiences learned while publishing an API, using APIs and building API platforms. You are probably a Developer, Enterprise Architect, Business Developer, Stategist or similar and knows about the technical and/or business aspects of one or more of the following sub-themes:

  • API Business Models
  • API Marketing
  • API Strategy
  • API Growth Models
  • API Security
  • API Design

This includes (but are not limited to) presentations about the Internet of Things, Open Data, Social Media, Mobile, Quantified Self, Startup API strategies, and Cloud Computing. We are very open to ideas so just send us a mail and we can discuss whatever idea you might have regarding Nordic APIs presentations.

  • The 200+ participants are most likely Programmers, Enterprise Architects, Business Developers or similar and are probably from Sweden, Norway, Finland or Denmark (even if we last year had plenty of visitors that had travelled a lot farther than that).
  • What we do NOT want are product pitches. If you want to pitch a product please mail info@nordicapis.com to inquire about sponsorship and the demo track at the conference.

How do we pick presentations?

We want great stories and presentations that provide the audience with insights into how they can be better API practitioners. Will will pick presentations that fit into that as well as presentations that we can group into cohesive interesting blocks. The decisions are made by the Nordic APIs team and are final.
