See you in Boston at APIStrat

By Shippo

APIStrat Shippo

Shippo’s going to be in Boston for API Strategy & Practice Conference from November 2 – 4, 2016. We are leaders within the API community and we are excited to meet others in the sector to talk about the success and challenges of executing an API strategy.

Today, more and more of the world are being powered by APIs and it’s important to understand the impacts that this will bring.

For Shippo, this means teaching businesses the power of using a shipping API for their operations and leveraging the data it can provide them. As people expect faster, cheaper, and more reliable shipping from e-commerce stores, shipping has moved beyond just a backroom operation and infiltrated every part of the business.

Come meet Shippo at APIStrat to talk more about how you can move physical goods around the world with an API. We’ll be hanging out at our booth and hosting the Thursday night happy hour.

If you’d like to schedule a time to meetup, let us know at We’re excited to see you!
