TALK 1 - Getting started with the Twitter API v2 by Aurelia Specker

An overview of what's available with the new Twitter API v2, with a special focus on Tweet annotations.

Speaker Bio - Aurelia is a Solutions Architect on the Developer Relations team at Twitter; she helps developers build solutions with the Twitter API.

TALK 2 - Fun With Threads! by Terence Eden

The new Twitter Conversation API is here. This is a quick tour of how it works and how you can create interesting and exotic visualisations of threaded discussions.

Speaker Bio - Terence is a technology expert, open source coder, open data publisher, and freelance security consultant. He was formerly the UK Government's representative to the W3C. He speaks around the world on open standards, open source software, and open data. He also helped get four-and-a-half new emoji into Unicode.

You can read his personal blog at https://shkspr.mobi/blog/ or follow him on Twitter at @edent.

TALK 3 - Spaces API exploration by Daniele Bernardi

Twitter Spaces is a new medium of communication; we built endpoints to build discovery experiences and to let hosts understand the performance of their Spaces. You'll hear all there is to know about social audio dynamics, including how you can build apps for listeners and hosts.

Speaker Bio - Daniele is a Developer Advocate at Twitter; he works with developers to use the Twitter API v2 to build the best apps for all users.  You can follow him on Twitter at @i_am_daniele.

The event will be hosted by Gen Ashley and Gerard Sans.

Venue -

Samsung KX
Coal Drops Yard
King's Cross
London, N1C 4DQ

- Coal Drops Yard is a short walking distance from King's Cross Mainline & Underground stations, as well as St Pancras International (where the Eurostar station is)

- When you arrive at Coal Drops Yard, you can either take the stairs or use the lift to take you the the Upper Level (there are 3 levels - Yard, ViaDuct, Upper Level). There are two types of lifts at Coal Drops Yard - one that can take you up to Samsung KX, the other only goes up to the Viaduct level. The key is to find the signs that says Samsung on Yard level (the lift is right around there).

As we have said on the in-person ticket type, any one attending in-person will have to bring proof of vaccination (ideally on the NHS app, but bring your vaccination card, too, in case of any tech issues with your app).

You will also have to wear a mask during the event.
