Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Open APIs are sweeping through public media, just like the rest of the world, but folks at NPR, PBS and others are thinking even bigger. Public media is in an unprecedented project to build an open API called the Public Media Platform (PMP) that will help developers create applications that bring personalized public media content to new platforms. Come learn from the leaders of the PMP on how this project is rolling out, where it is headed and how it can benefit you. We will be discussing how public media is creating the right technology layer, as well as balancing business rules to build new opportunities for our media to be For, By and Of the People.
