Evernote API Workshop in Bogotá, Colombia!

Evernote engineers and designers are traveling to Bogotá, Colombia to connect with the developer & start up community in Colombia. To support local developers, the team from Silicon Valley will be running a master class that covers all aspects of building apps that sync with the Evernote Cloud Platform.

Evernote API Workshop Overview
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 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.
