In August Xero’s ecosystem team will be hitting the road to host XD19 in Auckland, Sydney, London and Toronto. Spaces are limited, and we all know time is a precious thing, so we thought we’d lay out five reasons why you should grab your tickets before they get snapped up.
1. This is your community – get to know it!
Xero’s ecosystem community is filled with people who are working on the future of small business technology. There are over 700 certified apps in our app marketplace, and 50,000 users of Xero’s API and developer tools.
Whether you’re a long time member of Xero’s ecosystem or you’re curious about getting started, XD19 is the best place to share your ideas, experiences and learn how partnering with Xero grows business and leads for our app partners. Find out how we’ve been levelling up our developer platform over the last 12 months and how we’ll be creating new opportunities for you to master the ecosystem as we grow our platform.
2. Hear from industry leaders about using platforms for growth
Take a deep dive with an AWS user and Xero app partner on their development story, looking at the benefits of a cloud-first strategy and their experience building their application on AWS.
Xero’s open API creates huge opportunities for early stage startups, established apps, and third party developers innovating for small business. Hear about the latest updates to our platform and how to add resilience in your application, so your app can take a licking and keep on ticking.
3. Learn more about Xero’s app partner program
Xero has clocked over 1.8 million subscribers, and the opportunities that come with partnering with us continue to grow. New app partners are joining Xero’s ecosystem every week, and we’re helping grow their businesses whether they’ve got tens or tens of thousands of customers.
Hear first hand from our app partners as they tell their stories about successfully growing in Xero’s ecosystem, and learn the top tips for accelerating your trajectory through our app partner program.
4. We value partnerships above all else
We’re dead serious about this one – we succeed when our partners succeed. The metric for success of the Xero ecosystem is our app partners winning – we build and invest in a platform which is designed for you to do the best work of your life.
At every Xero Developer Roadshow this year we’re bringing together leaders from the local SaaS industry to talk platforms and partnerships as they share insights, lessons learned and stories about fast growth.
5. Drinks, pizza, and some fresh new digs
It wouldn’t be a roadshow without pizza and drinks, and this year your ticket also gets you a fresh new 2019 Xero Developer t-shirt – so fresh we’re not even wearing them yet. Or you can think of it as buying a t-shirt and getting a ticket to the best developer roadshow in the world (according to our marketing team).
We’ll see you there!
