Blackboard Developer Community Newsletter - Updates on Blackboard’s Developer Platform and Developer Program

 

 

For those who may not have been able to attend one of the recent DevCons or otherwise heard through the grapevine - there are substantial and positive changes happening with the Blackboard Developer Platform and Developer Program!

 

 

This is in part why it has been an exciting 6 months for Scott and me. We have traveled to hold DevCons in Liverpool, DC, and Adelaide. In doing so we have been able to meet developers and administrators directly to discuss what we and the company are envisioning as the new developer platform and program, and what we are personally doing to help achieve that vision. Simply we want to deliver to you the best possible developer experience and are working diligently with other Blackboard Staff to make this a reality.

 

 

As an example, Scott and I are traveling 18 days during the month of October through Singapore, Seoul, and Beijing. We will be taking this opportunity to evangelize the Developer Platform, conduct DevCons, and meet with Blackboard Staff and most importantly meet with our Customers.

 

 

On our return watch for an update on how our fellow developers on the Pacific Rim are using or interested in using the Blackboard dev platform to meet their integration requirements.

 

 

Also, over the coming months watch this space for quarterly newsletters and monthly blogs that will inform you of where we are in delivering exciting developer platform and program changes!

 

 

Until next time - Happy Coding!

 

Mark and Scott
