This is certainly going to be our largest event yet! If you haven’t booked a seat, be sure to do so now!
With almost 50 experts joining us in Stockholm to deliver talks on the latest and greatest, we’re providing you with the perfect opportunity to accelerate your API learning. Just hear what Marco Herbst, CEO of Evercam, had to say after attending our last annual conference:
Visiting Nordic APIs in 2013 was a crucial turning point for Evercam. I arrived with a rough understanding of what an API is and a curiosity to learn more. I left with an API centric business model, a much better understanding of the API ecosystem and some contacts that have been critical to the success of our business so far. One year on, we’re looking forward to Nordic APIs 2014.
The theme of this event is about one of the hottest topics within the API space at the moment — API platforms. Here’s where you can read more about the changes necessary to transform into one, and 5 acquisitions that prove how valuable the platform play can be. Those posts will really help get you acquainted with the topic. Come to the event to dig deep – really, you don’t want to miss this!
So here’s what the event will look like
