Twitter Flight schedule is now available

Monday, 29 September 2014

Twitter Flight will soon be here, and we wanted to give you a better idea of what to expect. We’re saving a few surprises for the big day, but the rest of the agenda builds on products you’re already familiar with.

Our CEO Dick Costolo will kick off the day with a keynote speaking to the special interests of mobile developers. Following that, we’ll have five technical sessions, each of which will be full of code and detail not only what our products do, but how we built them. Finally, we’ll cap off the day with a happy hour where you can meet and mingle with our engineering team, as well as the industry’s best and most celebrated mobile developers.

Be sure to sign up and apply to attend Flight. Space is limited.
