Twitter has launched “Twitter Flight”, a mobile developer conference that is set to take place in October in San Francisco and it is incidentally Twitter’s first developer event in four years. In a press statement, Twitter said it is “gathering of developers, for developers”. Through the event, Twitter is also aiming to rebrand itself a serious and determined contender, rendering the attention of mobile developers.
Flight is aimed at guiding developers in understanding how Twitter can help them in building the best mobile apps. The morning keynote will be delivered by CEO of Twitter, Dick Costolo. Following which, there will be a series of technical sessions and will end off with a session where participants can mingle with some of Twitter’s engineers.
Along with the announcement of Flight, Twitter is also introducing its newly-revamped developer site, dev.twitter.com where all content has been re-organised for easier navigation. Furthermore, all the old discussions have been migrated onto the new discussion forum where users can reclaim their old posts simply by logging in with their Twitter account.
With Flight and the new developer site, Twitter hopes to provide developers with the tools they need in order to build better apps.
