Dropbox Open, an event celebrating our business customers, is happening today in San Francisco, and it’s off to a great start this morning. We’re excited to have industry leaders including Salesforce’s Marc Benioff, HP’s Meg Whitman, and Apple’s Eddy Cue joining us at Dropbox Open. And we’re happy to welcome customers from around the globe to talk about where we’ve been and where we’re going.
I think 2013’s been a pretty great year. We refreshed just about everything we could, and started crafting a home for your photos. For people using Dropbox at work, we designed a brand new Dropbox for Business that gives both users and companies what they’ve been asking for. Meanwhile, we introduced the Dropbox Platform to developers worldwide, and brought Dropbox to seven new languages.
This stuff makes me happy,
Update: All of the session videos from DBX are now live!
If you couldn’t join us on Tuesday at DBX (or you just want to re-live the magic), the video of Drew’s keynote is now available:
(It’s just under an hour long.)
We’ll be posting videos of the other sessions and more updates on our developer site, so stay tuned!
We’re so excited this morning to kick off DBX, our first developer conference. Fort Mason is buzzing with energy from our incredible community of developers, designers, and partners. Back in 2007, when it was just the two of us coding in an apartment, we never imagined that six years later there’d be over 175 million people using Dropbox and more than a billion files synced each day.
We’re proud that Dropbox has become the home for millions of people’s most important stuff. So we want to be sure that stuff is always available,
Once upon a time, we built Dropbox to make it easy to have your stuff anywhere, and share it with others. But after using it a bit, many of us thought: “Wouldn’t it be great if [insert app name] could do that too?”
That’s why we started building Dropbox’s APIs (application-programming interfaces) for developers, which let Dropbox speak and interact with some of your favorite services and apps.
Dropbox’s APIs started with humble beginnings. At first, our Core API let users get to their stuff in Dropbox from other apps they were using.
Mark your calendars! This summer, the Dropbox community will come together on July 9 for a day of creativity and exploration at San Francisco’s Fort Mason.
At DBX, you’ll meet fellow developers, see the great things they’re building, and share ideas with the engineers and designers working on Dropbox’s API.
But most importantly, you’ll be the first to learn about new products that will make developing on Dropbox even easier.
We’ve got a lot of exciting news to share, so follow @dbx2013 for the latest.
