The YouTube Data API allows 3rd party developers to integrate YouTube features in their applications or websites. The recently launched version 3.0 of the YouTube Data API is a major refresh of the YouTube API platform, the first one in the 4 years since version 2.0 launched. The new version focuses on newest industry standards, elegant interfaces, efficient use of bandwidth, and introduces new YouTube features.
The session will detail the technical platform the new YouTube API is built on; how the new platform impacts existing developers and applications; and what are some of the new features never seen before in the previous versions of the API.

Starting this week, a closed-door meeting of the world’s governments is taking place in Dubai, and regulation of the Internet is on the agenda. Hundreds of thousands of people and more than 1000 organizations from more than 160 countries have voiced their opposition. We'll discuss what's at stake -- and what you can do to help.
