SAN JOSE, Calif., Jan. 18, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Apigee®, developer of an intelligent API platform for digital business, today announced that it is bringing the “I Love APIs” conference to Europe for the second year in a row.

The conference will feature over 18 sessions delivered by Apigee customers and other expert digital practitioners from all over the world, with hundreds of attendees from a diverse range of industries, providing a powerful networking opportunity.

Our expert sessions will cover a broad range of topics – from APIs and microservices to proven business strategies for digital acceleration.”

Apigee customers including Orange, Burberry, Bupa and Haymarket, will share their strategies for digitizing their business and the lessons they learned along the way. There will also be hands-on education sessions led by API experts across three topic tracks:

  • Business track: looking at digital transformation
