Agenda XD19 Sydney:

3.00pm - Registrations open

Kia ora and kick-off

Xero’s leadership team will be starting the day off outlining the value created for SMBs when Xero partners with developers and app partners.

Product Keynote - Building the hard things so you don’t have to

We recap how we’ve been levelling up our developer platform over the last 12 months and how we’ll be creating new opportunities for developers and app partners to master the ecosystem over the next 12 months.

Session 1 - Building integrations with resilience

As you grow, the investments you make in code resilience can pay huge dividends, through lower infrastructure costs or enabling support at scale. We’ll show ways to build more resilience into your Xero integration, but this can be applied more broadly as well.

Session 2 - Using platforms for growth

Take a deep dive with an AWS user and Xero app partner on their development story, looking at the benefits of a cloud-first strategy and their experience building their application on AWS. This will be co-presented with an AWS Solutions Architect.

Session 3 - How to supercharge your relationship to Xero

We take you through hacks for the Xero app marketplace, app partner program and landing page that will endear you to the Xero subscriber and accelerate your trajectory through our app partner program.


Session 4 - How to grow fast

Hear from one of our top local app partners as they share their experiences and insights into how to successfully market an app in the Xero ecosystem.

Session 5 - Sneak peek at oAuth 2 for Xero API

Xero’s platform team are working hard to deliver oAuth 2 support for our API this year. We will walk through code and connect to Xero’s API using a vanilla oAuth 2 library, cover the scopes you’ll need, what the Xero Tenant Id is and how to refresh your tokens when they expire.

Keynote - We succeed when our partners succeed

The metric for success of the Xero ecosystem is our app partners succeeding - we build and invest in a platform which is designed for you to do the best you can.

Panel - The best method of partnership

We bring together leaders from the local SaaS industry to talk platforms and partnerships - they’ll share insights, lessons learned and stories about fast growth.

6.30pm Networking - Drinks, pizza and chat
