Chris Stevens, Platform/API Evangelist

We are excited to have Chris Stevens from Traxo speaking at our second event this Thursday, July the 11th. Chris is the Platform/API Evangelist with Traxo.

This talk covers practical API strategy, tools, and techniques used by Traxo during 5 years of bootstrapping in the travel industry. With few open APIs in the travel industry, the Traxo API provided an exciting avenue for commercialization and growth even at the proof of concept stage.  We will cover technical aspects of productizing an API, working with enterprise customers, and how utilizing partners like 3Scale can minimize time to market.

We'll start with food and drinks from 6:00 - 6:45, Introductions will follow and Chris will start speaking around 7:00.

From 8:00+, we'll hang around and spend some time talking about APIs.


Parking area is shown on this map.

    Chris was a very good presenter. actually better than I thought he would be. material was also excellent. definitely opened some new ideas and things to watch for. I feel a more API geared approach coming into my development efforts :)

      That was a very impressive and polished presentation! I like the comparison of launching an API to flying a plane. Thank you again Chris!
