Mashery, a leading provider of API technology and services (as well as a ProgrammableWeb sponsor), has just announced that the annual Business of APIs (BAPI) Conference will be returning to San Francisco on October 2, New York on October 17 and London on November 6.

The past year has been the strongest for API growth, with the ProgrammableWeb Directory hitting the 7000 mark just last month. The number of APIs in active development are continuing to grow exponentially.

The annual Business of APIs (BAPI) Conference brings together top API experts and professionals to discuss using APIs to extend your business model, capture new revenue, extend affiliate networks, fuel innovation for new apps and much more.

The conference also features API University, a half-day curriculum that includes three educational sessions covering API management, security, strategies and more.
