You will also learn how to receive thousands of dollars in free Microsoft software and Azure cloud credits in reward for your entrepreneurial spirit. All source code will be shared with attendees, as well as a collection of open data API starter kits to build apps using Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Edmonds, Rotten Tomatoes, TomTom, Meetup and many more.


The Evernote API lets you tap into the functionality offered by the Evernote service and gain access to the millions of users around the world who use it every day. Using the same API that powers all of Evernote’s native apps, you get full access to a user’s Evernote account, allowing you to create new notes and access existing ones. In this workshop we’ll introduce the API and look at Evernote’s SDKs, then discuss creating new notes, rendering notes, searching for existing notes and other common operations. You’ll learn how your application can store its data in Evernote, how to tap into the information that a user has already stored in Evernote, and why Evernote is great for more than just note taking.
