RTE News on API Wars & Facebook Garage

conor 7th of March 2009 by conor

Lots more posts coming about Thursdays events. Suffice to say it blew away everyone’s expectations. 150+ people spent the afternoon learning and networking. Thanks again to all the speakers. Here is RTE’s coverage of it (full news episode on RTE site here):

Show and Tell at API Wars and Facebook Garage

conor 2nd of March 2009 by conor

The sign-ups for both API Wars and Facebook Garage have really exceeded anything we expected. Looking like 100+ will show up for both. There might be a babycham or two afterwards. Did I mention that the Garage is sponsored by Intel? The first Garage ever that they have sponsored. Nice eh? 

But it turns out that many of you are being far too coy. Events like these, which at heart are Unconferences or Unevents, rely on those attending to be more than passive listeners.

That’s why we’re putting the call out. If you want to talk on any topic relevant to either session, let us know. You don’t need slides, heck you don’t need notes, just have something interesting to say. Got an app with an API? Wanna tell people about it? Let us know. Got an app that mashes-up a bunch of APIs? Let us know. Integrated Facebook Connect or built an FB App? Let us know.
