IBM and StrongLoop will be visiting Austin, Texas from May 16-19 to take part in the “original (also the biggest, baddest & broadest) open source gathering”.
The IBM API Connect team will be sponsoring the Hack Zone this year, providing a space for attendees to meet outside the Expo Hall to hack on their latest projects, recharge, network, or grab swag!
The IBM booth will be located in the Expo Hall, so be sure to drop by to see what IBM and StrongLoop has to offer and to chat with experts about Node.js and APIs. The booth will have a lot going on at it, so be sure to visit and experience:
