Get ready for the July edition of the Austin Homegrown API Meetup! Join us from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, July 18. We'll meet on the third floor of the ShipEngine office at 4009 Marathon (located one block west of North Lamar between 40th and 41st streets, just behind Taco Shack). Parking is plentiful and free, and there will be signs to help you find the exact location. We'll have food plus beer and other drinks, and we'll pass out special T-shirts to anyone who wants to promote the Meetup around town.

The July 18 meeting will feature a presentation on insights from API developer experience testing given by Ian Jennings of Haxor Developer Experience. Ian has been working with clients to improve developer experience by testing documentation, tutorials and the overall onboarding process.

The general schedule will go like this:

5:30 to 6 p.m.: Food, beer and other drinks, socializing

6 to 7 p.m.: Introduction, presentation, discussion and Q&A

7:00 to 7:30 p.m.: Stay, eat, drink and chat with fellow attendees

Please RSVP so we know how much food and drink to have. Send a message if you have any questions or ideas, and look for the signs to find the exact location. Oh, and feel free to bring friends!

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 [masked]. Let us know if you’d like to give a lightning talk (5–15 minutes) or a feature talk (30–45 minutes).
