Join Us for the First Annual Parse Developer Day in San Francisco

We are excited to invite the Parse community to our first annual Parse Developer Day in San Francisco, California, on Thursday, September 5th, 2013 at the Marriott Marquis.

Parse Developer Day will open with talks from Parse co-founders Ilya Sukhar, James Yu, and Kevin Lacker. The morning will also include a Parse customer panel led by Doug Purdy, Product Management Director at Facebook, with the developers of the apps for The Food Network, Sesame Street, and Over. After a boxed lunch, there will be three afternoon tracks for hands-on learning. The first track will focus on the basics of Parse, the second will feature Parse partners like Microsoft, Twilio, SendGrid, Xamarin, and Stripe, and the third will be a more advanced look at Parse functionality.

When you're not in sessions, chat with the folks from Microsoft, SendGrid, Twilio, Xamarin, Stripe, Facebook, and Parse in our "Be Social" hall. We'll also have the Parse team on hand to give live support and feedback for your apps, and to answer any questions you might have about the Parse platform and app development. Don't feel like chatting with anyone? That's okay, too! We'll have games, an ice cream bar, and comfortable chairs so you can take a break from the day's action. An always-festive Parse After Party at nearby Press Club, including an open bar, will finish out the night for those who wish to attend.

We'd also like to invite you to take the opportunity to showcase your Parse-powered app during our happy hour show-and-tell. Email to register for a 5 minute slot to show off your app to all of our attendees, partners, and the Parse team. We can't wait to see what awesome things the Parse community has been working on!

100% of the proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to CodeNow, a nonprofit serving youth in New York City, Washington D.C., and San Francisco. The organization provides free, out-of-school training in computer programming to high schoolers, all of whom qualify for free or reduced-price lunch at school and more than 40% of whom are young women. CodeNow encourages collaboration among their students as they develop programming skills. Learn more about CodeNow at
