Technorati Users Group meeting December 21

Come drink beer and learn more about the Technorati API next Tuesday, December 21, at 7 p.m. at 21st Amendment in San Francisco. I will introduce Technorati API calls, demonstrate some existing applications built using the APIs, and lead you through some sample code using XPath and Java.

A few Technorati employees will stop by and provide updates on the developer program and provide the latest company news. If you are interested in learning more about live search, web services, or corporate intelligence this event is for you! The Technorati developer contest ends December 31 so this will be a good opportunity to develop or fine-tune your ideas for a to compete for over $3250 in prizes. I will raffle off two books — a copy of Michael Kay’s XPath 2.0 Programmer’s Reference and a copy of Dan Gillmor’s We the Media — for those in attendance.

21st Amendment is located at 563 2nd Street in San Francisco. It features free wireless internet, good food, and house made beers. On Tuesday you get to keep your pint glass! We will be upstairs at the mezzanine loft. Street parking is usually not an issue.

I will try to setup an iSight so you can listen and watch from anywhere in the world. Please join #technorati on next Tuesday night if you would like to participate in the meeting remotely via IRC.

If you plan to attend please leave a comment below or contact me so I can get a good idea of headcount.
