Alex Bowen leading an overview of DreamFactory.

Last Thursday we had our first official meetup in New York City! DreamFactory partnered with Clarifai, a visual recognition with artificial intelligence API provider, for a evening of fun and informative tech talks in the heart of Manhattan.

Starting the night off, our DevRel Alex Bowen gave a brief overview of DreamFactory’s API automation platform. She was really excited to share how DreamFactory can be installed on any server, connect to any data source and be developed for almost any device. As one of Dreamfactory’s community leaders, she also offered a rundown of the DreamFactory community and free resources folks can use. She can be found regularly on our community forum and is available to chat or answer your questions!

Next up was Cassidy Williams of Clarifai. Cassidy was featured in Glamour magazine as one of the "35 Women Under 35 Who Are Changing the Tech Industry," and she gave an engaging and fascinating talk about visual recognition and Clarifai’s high-performance deep-learning technology.

We ended the night with a talk by another of DreamFactory’s developer relations team, Tracy Osborn, who chatted about creating engaging and readable content and documentation. Tips included creating personas so you can imagine and “talk directly to” your reader and including helpful links and explanation in your writing and documentation so it’s accessible to all levels.
