Rumors aboard Mashape's spaceship

Orlando
  Earlier this month, I attended the APIdays conference in Sydney, organized by Saul Caganoff of Sixtree and supported by the ever present Mehdi Medjaoui.

Experts, evangelists and enthusiasts were welcome to attend and learn about what’s happening in the API space.   APIDays Sydney near Redfern hosted in an old repurposed train station   I personally enjoyed talks that featured topics less often discussed in the API landscape, such as security…

Creative Commons: https://flic.kr/p/6bun5f At Mashape, we are always looking for the best conferences where we can share our knowledge and expertise with our fellow developers. Sharing is part of our DNA! We are also huge fans of hackathons, user group meetups, and camp-style events.

Of course, we can’t participate in all tech-related events, but if your primary audience is developers, and you are looking for experienced speakers for non-product pitch talks, let us know! You…

Hey Mashapers, We just launched our new version of Mashape (internally, we called it “Mashape 5″) not too long ago. In this new version, we’ve redesigned certain flows on the site which may be different from the previous version (“Mashape 4″).

API providers, what are you waiting for? Documenting and publishing your API is just 3 easy steps: Filling in the basic information to
