Please register for the event if you plan on attending so we can know how many people to expect.

First 50 attendees will get cool t-shirts.

Nexus One phones
for the best demos at the end of the day!

Come join us as we talk about how you can build on Google Buzz.  In the morning, we'll cover several open standards (including Activity Streams, OAuth, PubSubHubbub, and Salmon) and go in depth with the Google Buzz API and libraries.
After lunch we'll have an extended hacking session with Googlers on hand to answer all your questions. At the end of the day we'll have some special prizes for the coolest applications developed that day.

About Google Buzz:

Google Buzz is a new way to start conversations about the things you find interesting.

Google Buzz API provides developers with a powerful set of API endpoints for searching, reading, and updating post content and metadata. This allows desktop, mobile, and web application developers to integrate with Buzz, and gives the user control of their own data so that they can freely share it with other sites and services as they see fit.
