Tue, 07/12/2016 - 13:33 - Manush Shah

We’re excited to be a Gold Sponsor at Mobile Photo Connect 2016 for a third consecutive year! We meet some of the best talent at this event and look forward to it every year. This year the event will take place in Palo Alto, California. Yes the birthplace of the Silicon Valley! We’ll have our very own Kartik Subramanian (Director, Mobile Product Management, APIs and Innovation) speak about monetizing photo apps and Drew Schweinfurth (Developer Evangelist) present a 4 minute Show & Tell.

As you may remember from last year, we are pleased to mention a majority of the attendees at Mobile Photo Connect were already integrated with our Photo Prints APIs and we hope to meet more successful integration opportunities this year!

We look forward to seeing everyone at Mobile Photo Connect 2016 and we’ll be sure to make it as fun and exciting as we have in previous years!

We're going to Evans Data Conference 2016

Fri, 03/18/2016 - 15:49 - Drew Schweinfurth

It’s that time of year again for us to head out to Palo Alto and take part in the annual Evan’s Data Developer Relations Conference! This year we will have our developer evangelist, Drew Schweinfurth, talk about "Creating enduring partnerships that inspire loyalty” during the Developer Bootcamp session on Sunday, March 20th.
Last year we had a great learning and teaching experience! Seeing all the developer evangelists and advocates helped us gain a better understanding of how each others programs operate. We look forward to the rewarding conversations we will be having at this years conference, where we will be digging down into the trenches of developer evangelism.
We plan to make two new announcements that we’re very proud of as we continue to grow our developer program. Please stay tuned either remotely or come hangout with us at the event!

The Walgreens API team is very excited to be involved with WildHacks directly located in our home base of Chicago!
This event offers a really great opportunity to work alongside our Walgreens Developer Evangelist, @WalgreensAPI, to create some unique Photo Prints API integrations. We have been involved with hack-a-thons like this before and have always had a great experience with the many photo partners we meet and foster at these events!
We look forward to some awesome innovative ideas from this event, which you can learn more about at, where we have listed the prizes we are giving out at the event and have some getting started documentation!

Are you going to Mobile Photo Connect? We are!

Recap: Evans Data - Developer Relations Conference

Thu, 03/26/2015 - 13:38 - Drew Schweinfurth

We recently took a quick jump to the Palo Alto / Bay Area and sponsored the Evans Data Developer Relations Conference. There, we witnessed a plethora of developer evangelists and developer relations program managers across a variety of companies and industries. 
We had discussions and focused learning events that enabled attendees to learn about how the Walgreens Developer Program is run. We also listened to success stories and lessons learned from everyone, with great interactive presentations from Twilio to Phillips Hue
Our fearless leader, Joe Rago, shared his extensive knowledge about our developer program, which we actually attempted to live stream to the masses. Other then blowing minds and changing perspectives of Walgreens, he also received some great feedback on things to look forward to in our program. If you weren't there for his presentation, don't worry, the slides are embedded below!
Developer Evangelist, Drew Schweinfurth, also got to take the great opportunity to play the role of "General" at a new portion of the event dubbed the "Developer Bootcamp". This portion was a unique experience with about 20 different industry newbies and leaders that are directly invloved in molding and shaping the developer programs of their organizations. He took the role of evangelist in true fashion and talked about two major topics: Trying New Things and Onboarding Developers. The slides are embedded below:
