Chicago, IL, March 09, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Aaron E. Silvers, is readying xAPI Camp. It is the first conference event from Connections Forum, formed by Silvers and partner, Megan Bowe of MakingBetter, in 2014.
Connections Forum is an organization supporting the Experience API (xAPI; also “Tin Can”). xAPI is an open-source technology finding rapid adoption across industries. It provides a consistent data format that works across different software and devices.
Major companies, hospitals, universities and government organizations are adopting this interoperable data format. Silvers says, "The time is right to help professionals find solutions to their toughest organizational challenges. There is tremendous growth opportunity for entrepreneurs and innovators to work with enterprise data.”
Connections Forum is holding its first xAPI Camp in Orlando, Fla., on March 24, 2015. It is hosted by the University of Central Florida’s Institute for Simulation & Training, with sponsorship from Advanced Distributed Learning, IEEE, Cognitive Advisors, Float Mobile Learning, HT2, MakingBetter, OnPoint Digital, Problem Solutions, Riptide Software, RISC Inc., Rustici Software, Saltbox, Yet Analytics, O'Reilly and Rosenfeld Media.
xAPI kickstarts a new era when technologies can connect to help people learn, do and improve. “The companies interested in xAPI want solutions that just work,” says Silvers.
Experts will show over fifteen case studies at the one-day conference. With short “campfire” talks and hands-on demonstration, participants will confer in small groups. Silvers says, "Whether the goal for a participant is to go back to work with information or next-actions, they'll get it here."
