This year’s Boston Data-Con, which is being held at Microsoft’s R&D Center in Cambridge, will havehands-on workshops that pertain to Application Programming Interfaces. API’s are being leverages across many industries, and as such this event will work to help participants learn how to access API’s; as well as creating “data products” whether blogs, web applications, or the like. Many thanks to Microsoft NERD for hosting us!

The Programmable Web site provides good coverage of API’s, and beyond that there are many sites focused on specific applications.
