Twitter announced its first ever developer conference, Chirp, to be held in San Francisco on April 14 and 15.
The two-day event will start off with a full day of guest speakers at the Palace of Fine Arts Theatre in San Francisco and will cover various topics including streaming, geolocation, business strategies and mobile integration. Day two of Chirp, a 24-hour Hack Day, will be held at the Herbst Pavilion, giving developers the opportunity to “hack away alongside the top developers of Twitter.” Attendees will have the chance to participate in several workshops and share ideas from the best in the industry. The 24-hour Hack Day will end with a contest for the best apps.
Keynote speakers throughout the event will include Ev Williams (CEO and co-founder of Twitter), Biz Stone (co-founder of Twitter), Ryan Sarver (Director of Platform at Twitter) and Dick Costolo (COO of Twitter). Twitter promises many other guest speakers and surprises to be announced, including a sneak peek at its un-released API features.
Twitter is releasing about 800 tickets at $469 a pop. The tickets will be released in waves on a first-come, first-served basis. For more information visit chirp.twitter.com.
