BYU API Winter Workshop
Hosted by Brigham Young University
The University API Winter Workshop covers topics on developing APIs, implementing DevOps practices, deploying Domain of One’s Own (DoOO) projects, improving the use of digital identity 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, you’re 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.
Doors will open at 8:00 each day with a continental breakfast.
Tuesday Feb 28 Day 1 will begin at 8:30AM with introduction/orientation followed by Agenda Creation. There will be 5 working sessions
There will be a no-host dinner at 6:30pm. Location TBD.
Wednesday Mar 1 Day 2 will have Agenda Creation beginning at 8:30AM. There will be 5 working sessions and we will end by 4pm.
