Building with Twitter – How to Dominate the API

A session at SXSW Interactive 2011

Sunday 13th March, 2011

5:00pm to 6:00pm (CST)

Few API’s spew out as much data as Twitter’s does, and few come anywhere close to its popularity with developers. But it’s not a walk in the park. It takes a lot of careful design and experience to build apps that please users even when Twitter is overloaded or the API’s limitations get in your way.

In this panel, we'll talk about lessons from developers in the field who have tapped into Twitter’s API successfully. The panelists will share their technical and strategic tips for how to build applications with the API that perform consistently, reliably and innovate beyond basic uses.

If you’re thinking about using the Twitter API for the first time or are a seasoned pro – this panel will be an insightful discussion about the techniques and strategies that help you make the most of it.
