Last week we had the opportunity to meet some of the top developers in Latin America at the technical meetups we hosted in Bogota, Colombia, and Monterrey, Mexico.
The first workshop took place on May 22 in Colombia at Wayra Bogota, where more than 40 participants learned about the Evernote API and how to integrate it into new or existing applications. This was our first ever technical workshop in Colombia and it was great to meet the local developer community in this country. We were impressed with the technical talent and the eagerness to learn from the local developer community in Colombia.
The second technical workshop took place in Monterrey, Mexico, where Evernote was part of AngelHack Monterrey, where more than 200 talented developers came together for two days to create a prototype – or hack – of an idea that solves an important problem. Evernote awarded the best integration of our API and, of the 38 projects that participated, five projects integrated their applications to Evernote. The winner was SUMMIT, an application that searches for a job based on your technical capabilities and whose search results are stored directly into Evernote.
Chris Traganos and Mustafa Furniturewala, engineering and design experts from Evernote, traveled from Silicon Valley to train the local developer and startup communities in Bogota and Monterrey. We also invited them to participate in Devcup 2013, an annual competition of software developers and designers that awards the best products associated with the Evernote API.
It was a great experience for both Evernote and the local developer community. We hope to see a lot of the applications integrate with Evernote and also apply for Devcup 2013. Remember to apply before June 28, 2013.

We’ll keep you posted on our next technical workshop in Latin America.
