Taking Our Show on the Road

Conferences and Hackathons We’re Visiting This Month.

Come meet members of our team and learn more about our APIs at some upcoming events across the country!


Our first stop was at the local ForwardJS/ForwardSwift conferences here in San Francisco on March 1st & 2nd. We had a few Squares in attendance to learn about the upcoming technologies in Javascript and Swift, as well as a booth where we discussed some of the new features of our APIs and even some of our open front-end and iOS positions, (if you missed the event and are interested in our listed positions, check out Square Careers). It was great to see all the local developers interested in the latest and greatest development technologies.


Next up you’ll find our team in Austin, TX for the SXSW Hackathon on March 14th — 15th. This year it is focused on three verticals (music, VR/AR, film) with challenges in things like creation, distribution, and most importantly for us, commerce and monetization. We are super excited to see what the hackers come up with for musicians and artists of all types to turn their passion into a profession. If you are going to be in town (even if you don’t participate in the hackathon) we’d love to see you at the afterparty at Green Light social!

Our last stop in March is Devoxx US in San Jose, CA from March 21st — 23rd. Py ⚔ will be giving a talk on our open source tool LeakCanary and how you can use it to automatically find memory leaks, as well as how to fix them. Other members of our team will be there to show off some of the new offerings we’ll have for Java developers. If you are reading this, and will be at Devoxx, let us know! We’d love to see you there. And stay tuned to hear where we’ll be next.
