5th Annual BYU API Winter Workshop

An unConference Focused on University & Personal API's & Their Use in Improving Learning.

Hosted by Brigham Young University

The University API Winter Workshop covers topics in an educational technology (EdTech) context on developing, managing, and using APIs, successfully implementing DevOps practices, architecting distributed ledger systems implementing blockchain, successfully deploying Domain of Ones Own (DoOO) environments, improving the use of digital identity and security technologies, and framing digital fluency on University campuses. This workshop is focused on addressing current issues and best practices experienced in building out conceptual models and collecting examples of real-life use cases. Attendees include IT architects, educational technologists, faculty, and software engineers from many universities.

UAPI is an unConference. It has no assigned speakers or panels, so it's about getting stuff done. We will have a trained open space facilitator at the workshop to run the show and make sure we are properly organized.

UAPI is a participatory workshop.Because it is an unConference you are invited to speak and share, pose questions or ask for input.If you have an idea for a session now or even get one in the middle of the conference, youre welcome to propose it and run a session.

The agenda will be created live each day by attendees present at the opening of the day. Anyone who wants to host a session that day will announce the topic and chose a space and time. There is no voting or picking other than with your feet, where you choose to go. You'll have plenty of chances to exchange ideas and make new professional connections.
