Consumers, providers and lovers of APIs need some face time. That's why ProgrammableWeb is helping host an API roundtable track at the Small Business Web Summit on February 19 in San Jose. The goal is to get API thinkers together to discuss the issues we face and find solutions that improve experiences for everybody. Plus, there are two chances to drink and dine together, included in the modest event pass.

It's been a little over a year since the last summit and the number of companies in The Small Business Web has grown to over 200. The list includes biggies, like Intuit, Google Apps and X.commerce (Ebay, Magento, PayPal). But the organization's roots go to smaller players--like founders FreshBooks, Mailchimp and Batchbook--building the key services that empower small businesses on the web.

Since its founding in 2009, the organization's manifesto includes open APIs to integrate with each other. Join ProgramableWeb and these forward-thinking API companies at the Small Business Web Summit.
