FPF to co-host App Developers Privacy Summit series in D.C. on Nov. 29th


We’re hosting an event with the Application Developers Alliance in D.C. on Thursday, November 29th and we would love to see you there! It’s free to register, but space is limited.  Here are the details – please feel free to share this information with anyone who might be interested:

Free Happy Hour + Application Developer Privacy Conversation – Thursday, November 29 at Living Social

WHAT:  Happy Hour and Open Discussion – How are privacy policies going to impact developers’ work? What can you do influence the debate? No charge, but you must register to reserve a spot – REGISTER NOW

WHO: Leading the discussion — Tim Sparapani, Sr. Advisor for Policy and Law, Application Developers Alliance; Colin O’Malley, Chief Strategy Officer, Evidon; Jeff Brueggeman, Vice President-Public Policy and Deputy Chief Privacy Officer, AT&T; Michael Mayernick, Co-Founder, Spinnakr;  Jules Polonetsky, Co-chair and Director, Future of Privacy Forum; FTC representative (tbc)

WHEN:  Thursday, November 29 – 6:30-9:30pm

WHERE:  Living Social, Dupont Room — 918 F Street, NW  Washington, DC 20004

WHY:  Developers are in the crosshairs of a nationwide explosion of lawmaking. Legislators and regulators are making decisions about software privacy that will make your work more difficult, and this is your opportunity to make your voice heard. Anyone who writes software — no matter the language or platform — must understand the issues and take the lead in the discussion to ensure privacy protections are effective but do not impede growth in the business of creating software.

That’s why we’ve brought the privacy conversation to developers in cities across the U.S. The series includes conversations guided by discussion leaders to help developers better understand the changing privacy landscape and give them a voice in the dialogue. This isn’t a heavy event, it’s a conversation led by and for developers which is why we’re also providing a fully stocked happy hour. Because we know even the biggest challenges can be solved over a few beers (just not too many). REGISTER NOW.
