International tech blog The Next Web's flagship conference is coming next week to Amsterdam. As part of the event, there will be a two day hackathon, which will bring 200 European developers together to build new, innovative apps out of SDKs and APIs. With partners like Blackberry, Amazon Web Services and the MailChimp API, it's a good chance to meet fellow devs and create something new and cool.
A developer conference and associated awards package aims to create a developer community around business travel – a market worth over $250 billion each year. The Perfect Trip DevCon is the brainchild of Concur, a travel and expense automation service, built on a range of web and software as a service technologies and making use of a wide variety of financial and travel APIs (and accessible via the Concur API).
