Parse Developer Day Set For Sept. 5 In San Francisco

Parse, the cloud application platform acquired by Facebook in April, will host its first annual Parse Developer Day Thursday, Sept. 5, at the Marriott Marquis in San Francisco.

Co-Founders Ilya Sukhar, James Yu, and Kevin Lacker will open the conference with talks.

Facebook Director of Product Management Doug Purdy will then lead a panel with developers from Food Network, Sesame Street, and Over.

Following a boxed lunch, three afternoon tracks will offer attendees hands-on learning — one on the basics of Parse; one featuring Parse partners including Microsoft, Twilio, SendGrid, and Xamarin; and one providing a more advanced look at the cloud app platform’s functionality.

Other features will include a “Be Social” hall where attendees can speak with presenters, games, an ice cream bar, and an after-party at Press Club, including open bar.

Tickets are $45, or $35 for students, and all proceeds will go to CodeNow, a nonprofit group that provides free, out-of-school computer training to students in New York; Washington, D.C.; and San Francisco.
