Regional Event Recap

Last week, we held our biggest APIs event ever. The two-day conference covered the full gambit of API topics from HTTP headers to business models. We had over 35 keynotes, presentations, demos, and unconference sessions and 170 people participating. It was a great step forward in achieving our vision of bringing together the API community here in the north. Many people have summarized the proceeding, and shared their take aways:

… and a few more in Swedish:

People were really active on Twitter during the event as well. In fact, on the first day, the hashtag #NordicAPIs even trended here in Sweden! Here’s some samples:

There were also lots of great photos snapped during the day. You can find many of them on Instagram and Twitter. Here’s some of my personal favs:

You will find all the sessions on YouTube and the slides on SlideShare in the coming days and weeks.

As you can probably tell even if you weren’t there, it was a big job, and Andreas and I want to thank our team again. Jacob Ideskog, Simon Andersson, Kemie Guaida, Camilla Åsberg Knudsen, Sara Spencer, Anna Andersson, Ester Ideskog: THANK YOU!!!

Also, another big thank you to our sponsors, especially Ping Identity and Layer 7 who made almost all of the Nordic tour w/ us this year. The event would not have been possible w/out the support and contributions of our sponsors. THANK YOU ALL!!!

And of course, THANK YOU to all who were able to attend. Together, we will make the Nordics programmable!

Next up: Øredev on November 7 and Nordic APIs for Business at Internetdagarna on November 26. See ya all there!
