Haystack Connect 2017 Recap

This year’s Haystack Connect Event held at the Saddlebrook Resort in Tampa, Florida was an outstanding success. Now the third installment of the biannual community event attracted the best ever collection of industry experts, software and hardware solution providers, and the largest gathering of the Haystack community.

Adam Hise of Harbor Research summarized the event in his recent article - “If the mood of 2013’s Connect was one of ‘I am curious’ and 2015’s was ‘I am interested’, the vibe at 2017 was unmistakably, ‘I am ready’.”
The Technical Programs covered topics ranging from the basics of tagging and data modeling to the computer science of self-learning algorithms. Our very own Scott Muench presented, “Introduction to Project Haystack and Data Modeling”. All presentations are available for download from the Speaker Profiles page.

Following the event, J2 Innovations held its inaugural software Developer Meetup. The event welcomed technologists, developers, entrepreneurs, and the broader Haystack community to expand their knowledge of the FIN Framework. Our CEO Jason Briggs explained how to develop apps with Haystack tags by using our state of the art SDK and new open APIs.
