Tech Session: X.Commerce @ USA TODAY HQ

This tech session will be held at USA TODAY HQ building and will serve as our normal 1st Weds of the Sept tech meetup (event though it falls on the 31st of Aug).

X.commerce, a joint effort by eBay, Paypal and Magento, is sending a team and a rockstar bus on a national tour and DC is their first east coast stop. They are looking to meet and speak with as many developers as possible as they make their way across the country. If you're doing any commerce focused development, web or mobile, this is a great opportunity to meet the X.commerce team and share your insights. There will be demos but this is also about exchanging ideas and helping shape the future of commerce. Attendees will be eligible for discounts to their upcoming X.Commerce conference taking place Oct 11-12. 

Come discuss ecommerce, share your insights with the X.commerce team and make some great connections for the future.

    After hearing about the group on the Kojo Nambdi show the day before, I decided to check it out. It was great to be in an environment with a lot of interesting concepts floating around. Since I just started attempting to develop simple apps (as a hobby), much of the content was beyond my skill level. However, my little "app ideas" notebook started to fill up.

    Great bus! All presenters did an outstanding job. The x.Commerce team was enjoyable to have as our guest and USA TODAY provided excellent meeting space.

    Very well organized event. The demos were good. I was hoping to see more from x.commerce team though. There wasn't much to see or experience on the bus or the booth. The presentation from the x.commerce still left me wondering what is it that they are trying to offer beyond individual products/offerings.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
