Thanks to everyone who made it along to our first developer meetup on Friday in London – it was brilliant to see so many people there and to get to chat to you all.

For those who missed our announcement, we’ve recently kicked-off running meetups for developers to help them get the most from our platform. We have meetups coming up soon in San Francisco and New York, it would be great to see your developers and data scientists there.

What did you miss?
We lined up three talks for attendees. Firstly Kester Ford introduced PYLON for Facebook topic data explaining how customers can build completely new insights from aggregated and anonymised content data on Facebook. Following this I gave a technical demonstration of the product end-to-end. Then we were joined by Linda Murata from Pulsar who showed how PYLON is integrated with their latest products. It was great to see PYLON ‘in the wild’ driving a successful commercial product that customers are desperate to get their hands on!

Following the talks we stopped for questions. A great range of questions – it was good too see our audience so engaged with the topics discussed.

Did you say table tennis?
Alongside great content we hosted the meetup at Bounce – the Home of Ping Pong, so we also enjoyed some great table tennis action. Our investment in an office table tennis table paid dividends – the DataSift team competed strongly!

Of course it was also great to meet so many of our customers and developers in a relaxed environment. We enjoyed listening to your ideas and feedback.
