Your ideas for next Apps & APIs London meetup

Posted on by Nate Macleitch

This is a message posted to our 273 members of Mobile Backend Apps & APIs meetup but I thought I would also post it here for any feedback from our blog subscribers.

Hi guys! Our group has been a bit quiet this year as we’ve been busy building cool stuff.

Last year we had a number of really successful meetups with lively dialog between developers and cloud API providers where we both learned more, had a thoughtful discussion over beer and pizzas and listened to some really great speakers from the worlds of developers and cloud API providers.

Your ideas for next Mobile Backend – Apps & APIs meetup

It is now time to resume so please get in touch if:

  • you know about some cool APIs you want to tell fellow developers about
  • you’ve built an awesome app you want to showcase (ideally using a cloud API)
  • you want to find more about some API / cloud platform / app development technology from people professionally involved in that space

We will process your feedback and announce speakers, time and venue for our next event.

News from QuickBlox

To tell you more about the stuff we’ve been working on at QuickBlox:

1. Free tier: QuickBlox is now FREE for developers with unlimited API calls and 10Gb traffic/storage per month to use in your apps.

2. Video Calling SDK: Check out our video chat SDK for iOS featured by TheNextWeb. Add FaceTime / Skype functionality into your app via simple drag&drop of our library. As usual code sample is available on GitHub. Working on Android and Web libraries right now – e-mail to get on beta users list if you’re Android or web developer.

3. BB10 Facebook Connector: We have released an open-source Facebook connector library for BlackBerry 10 which we have used in official Liverpool Connect BB10 app as featured in BlackBerry Developers blog and Crackberry.

Opportunity for SDK developers and platform evangelists in London (and US)

Want to get directly involved in making cloud API platform such as QuickBlox? Build innovative enabling technologies such as VideoChat, WebRTC or Augmented Reality SDK libraries? Be the first to tell the world about it?

E-mail taras AT if you want to become a part of QuickBlox team (or know somebody who seems a good candidate for us).

Thanks – that’s pretty much it – keep building great apps and will see you all in our next meetup!
