What we're about

Are you obsessed with APIs? Are you building an innovative new API for your company? Are you creating tools to help reshape the world through API usage? Do you create mashups for everything? Are you frustrated that no one understands what you do at your API-related job? 
Join us for the Austin Homegrown API Meetup, hosted by ShipEngine. We meet each month at the new ShipEngine building at 4301 Bull Creek rd.  
You can always count on food, beer, good discussion, great people and free/plentiful parking. Join our meetup and stay tuned for upcoming event schedules, details and more!

Do you have an idea for a future talk? We want to hear it! We’re interested in topics like API design, management, testing, documentation, tips & tricks, tools, emerging technologies, or anything else API related. Talk to a ShipEngine representative at the meetup, or email us at contact@shipengine.com. Let us know if you’d like to give a lightning talk (5–15 minutes) or a feature talk (30–45 minutes).

API Security: When Failure looks like Success

Needs a location

The Austin API Meetup is back with another great event! Join ShipEgine on July 21st from 5:30-7:30 pm CT as Keith Casey, API legacy member will be joining us to speak about API Security. APIs have become fundamental to our teams, partners, and customers. While we’d like to believe it all happened as a carefully executed plan, let’s be honest… There's as much luck as foresight in the mix. Luckily, success drives success so we’ve seen things explode in great ways. Unfortunately, that very success has cost us too.

Don't miss out on the Happy Hour, networking, and knowledge! There is limited seating for this event, reserve your spot now!
