3scale Hosts First API Meetup in Barcelona

March 9th, 2015 |

At 3scale, we are API nerds, and we are surely not the only ones if you look at the number of API-related events around the world. During the year we participate in a lot of conferences and meetups with the API community, but nothing really existed in our local community of Barcelona besides the yearly APIdays Mediterannea.

We wanted to host a local group for hackers to exchange ideas about APIs and show the world that Barcelona has an active tech scene. This meetup would let local hackers present their work on APIs, as well as give them the opportunity to hear world-class international speakers. We plan to host this meetup regularly, every 3 months at 3scale HQ.

What better time than the week of Mobile World Congress to do the first meetup?

For the first edition, we had the pleasure of hosting the Twitter Advocates team as part of the international tour of the Twitter Flock. Having just arrived from Berlin, Romain and

API Solutions For Predictive APIs at PAPIs Conference

November 13th, 2014 |

The 1st International Conference on Predictive APIs and Apps (PAPIs) will be held on November 17th – 18th, 2014 in Barcelona, Spain.

What is the PAPIs conference?

Attending PAPIs is the best way to learn how to give predictive capabilities to your business and to your apps, to discover what others are doing and how, and to find out about the latest tools and developments.

Sessions are BS-free, chosen rigorously by a program committee consisting of experts and thought leaders in machine learning, data mining and predictive analytics. As a consequence, there won’t be any sales pitches, marketing speeches or buzzword cover-ups — you can instead expect an exciting learning experience full of very practical, technical talks on how to build predictive APIs and predictive apps.

What are Predictive APIs?

As we are collecting m…
