The Pearson Developers Network (PDN) provides API documentation, tools, and support for developers as they utilize Pearson APIs to create exciting and new applications for users world-wide. A developer network is nothing new; any large company full of technologists and the drive to share their data via application programming interfaces (APIs) has a developers network of some sort. What makes the PDN stand out? The answer is in the vast products and product lines and educational platforms offered by Pearson Education.

Once again, Plug & Play had the pleasure to attend Launch48 Weekend in October this year.   The event kicked off on Friday evening (October 18) at City University with a brief welcome presentation by organiser Simon McCann, followed by 60-second-pitches from attendees. 8 ideas were chosen as projects for the weekend (1 team broke up early on Saturday, so there were only 7 pitches in the end).

Last month, two of my colleagues represented Pearson and the Future Tech team at the Startup Weekend Education event in Chicago.
