Developers who code for the AdWords API do not want to miss the upcoming AdWords API v2009 Hack Days. There is one in San Francisco on January 7, 2010 and on in New York on January 14, 2010. The event is free and runs most the day, plus you get a free Google lunch. Keep in mind, the event is only for developers.
Eric Koleda from the Google AdWords API Team extended the invite in the AdWords API Forum. Eric said:
Have you been putting off migrating to v2009? Not sure where to start? Been way too busy? Well it's time to jump start your v2009 development with some in-person help from Google. Join us in Mountain View or New York for a full day of non-stop v2009 hacking.
To keep things interesting throughout the day, we'll do some coding demos of the cool things you can do with v2009 that weren't possible in v13, like asynchronous calls, dynamic ad parameters, and more. Non-engineers beware! This is a developer-only event, and there will be no content or activities for attendees who don't plan to write code.
Space is limited, and signups are on a first come, first serve basis. We ask that you limit attendees to two people per company. If you are based in Europe please don't register yet, as a similar EMEA event is in the works and will be announced shortly.
