Complete SXSW 2014 Event Schedule

Michael Schwartz January 31, 2014


It’s that time of year again when Austin starts to buzz with excitement.

Why..? Because SXSW 2014 is rapidly approaching!

Check out our daily recommendations for awesome SXSW 2014 Interactive sessions.

Here is a quick rundown of all our SXSW related events:

** Saturday & Sunday February 15th, 16th – HackingEAST – API’s for Art: Austin’s community of artists make our city a much more inspiring and fun place to live. But unfortunately, Austin’s population of artists probably exceeds the size of the art-buying market. The goal of this hackathon is to create a mobile app that helps local artists list their works, and people more effectively share the works with their network of art-appreciating friends and family. The winning team will receive FREE SXSW INTERACTIVE BADGES!

** Friday March 7th – Hacking LinkedIn – The B2B Bible: Gluu Director of Business Development Will Lowe will be hosting a workshop to teach the automation secrets that have expanded Mike’s professional network on LinkedIn by more than 1,000 targeted connections in less than 7 months.

** Saturday March 8th – South by GoLab Presents Carnival: GoLab Austin is back at it again this year with a Brazilian Carnival-inspired unofficial SXSW party. There will be live music, a DJ, live art, food and beverage, and potentially a wellness center for those people who show up and just want to unwind.

** Monday March 10th – Who Are You? From Meat to Electrons and Back Again: This is my first official SXSW session! In it, I will discuss the sexiest new ways to authenticate: mobile, location-based, biometric, image-based… proving who you are is now possible more ways from more types of devices than ever, and the pace of innovation is showing no signs of fatigue.

** Monday March 10th – UMA Roundtable – A Beef ‘N Bug BBQ: UMAnitarians gather to discuss latest developments around the new OAuth 2 authorization profile as well as other digital identity and security topics. Email for the event password.

** Tuesday March 11th – Third Annual Identity Biergarten: For the third year in a row, Gluu will be hosting an informal gathering of identity and security professionals to network and discuss current trends over some delicious malty beverages. Email for the event password.
