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.
