For this event, we'll be in a very unique, intimate space, hence the lower cap on attendance.

Here's the plan:

1. Main Speaker:

Mike Stowe, Developer Relations, Mulesoft (@mikegstowe)

Building Your API for Longevity

One of the greatest challenges to developing an API is ensuring that your API lasts. After all, you don’t want to have to release and manage multiple versions of your API just because you weren’t expecting users to use it a certain way, or because you didn’t anticipate far enough down the roadmap. In this session we’ll talk about the challenge of API Longevity, as well as ways to increase your API lifecycle including having a proper mindset, careful design, agile user experience and prototyping, best design practices including hypermedia, and the challenge of maintaining persistence.

2. Lightning Talks!

On this event we're going to try something we've not done before:

We'll have 5 slots of 5 minutes each, plus 2 minutes of Q&A at the end of every lightning talk. If you wish to speak, please see the organizers (Emmanuel or Brandur) before the main talk to register for a slot.

We'll have a timer running, so make every second count :)

Detailed venue instructions:

- Enter the Pier from Embarcadero

- Continue into the Pier past the Autodesk reception doors until you see a yellow robot (the Instructables logo)

- You'll be able to see the Meetup group through the glass door entrance

- Please check in at the door with your name

See you there!
