4/15/2010 – Update : The report from Chirp, Twitter’s first gathering of its developer ecosystem (Source – boston.com)
3/31/2010- Update : Today, Twitter is putting on sale tickets for the second day of the conference for only $140 (yes, 140, like Twitter’s character limit). To be clear, this is just for the second day of the conference, but for those on a budget, it’s a much better deal to be able to take part in the event. The second day is the hack-a-thon event taking place at Fort Mason in the city. And it actually begins at 7 PM PT at the end of day one of the event, when Twitter buses people over from the Palace of Fine Arts, where the day one events (including the major keynotes from Twitter execs) take place – Source : TechCrunch
Chirp – the official Twitter Developer Conference is less than 30 days away and the event is really starting to take shape. If you are not yet on the list and want to be in there for the announcements, to meet the entire Twitter team, and to connect with the developers, media and financiers in attendance, there are still tickets available at http://chirp.twitter.com/sign_up.html.
Yesterday The Twitter team released more details about the first day agenda. Biz Stone (@biz) will set the tone of the day with Evan Wiliams’ (@ev) delivering a visionary keynote. Ryan Sarver (@rsarver) will share Platform announcements and roadmap details and Dick Costolo (@dickc) will talk about monetization and commercial accounts. They even have a few surprises peppered throughout the day.
You can see the complete agenda at http://chirp.twitter.com/schedule.html.
The second day’s schedule will be available early next week. It has something for everyone. Deep technical tracks for developers, business sessions for managers, policy talks for implementers, birds of a feather roundtables for information sharing, and more. The goal of this meet on the second day is to create an environment for everyone to network, share knowledge and collaborate. So in addition to the formal tracks, we’ll also have informal areas dedicated to impromptu, community lead conversations.
Twitter employees from all area’s of the company will be in heavy attendance to answer any questions you have. To make it easy, we sought a raw and unique space to make our own: http://twitter.com/Chirp/status/10730332651
Finally — They are arranging a competition which will be held on the second day. The panel of judges is impressive. Winners will receive the opportunity to connect with angel investors and get the attention of the press covering Chirp. The only catch: you’ve got to be there to take part!
