Want to learn more about how to develop or integrate with the LinkedIn platform? Then plan on attending the LinkedIn Developer Meetup at Kube Hotel, Paris (December 9th at 5:30pm CET / 17:30 hrs) that we’re holding on the sidelines of the Le Web Conference this year. A big thanks to Dave McClure and Loic Le Meur for helping with the developer meetup!
At the meetup, we’ll show you how you can use our Developer Portal to quickly get up and running. You’ll also get to hear from other developers who’ve already built integrations with our APIs. We’ll have ample time for Q&A and some networking after that (of course)!
Code Alert! This is a part of our continuing series on Engineering at LinkedIn. If this isn’t your cup of Java, check back tomorrow for regular LinkedIn programming. In the meanwhile, check out some of our recent feature announcements, tips and tricks, or success stories.
At this year’s JavaOne conference Yegor Borovikov and myself had the opportunity to present details of our RESTful API framework. Our Birds of a Feather presentation is titled “Building Consistent RESTful APIs in a High Performance Environment” and it describes our use of a coherent domain model as the foundation for our APIs.

Here are three enhancements to LinkedIn’s Native iPhone app that will significantly improve your experience:
I’ve got some exciting news for iPhone lovers as I’m here to announce LinkedIn’s very own native iPhone app. Based on the same back end which serves LinkedIn mobile, LinkedIn iPhone App provides users with a quicker response and more features; basically the complete mobile experience for professional networkers.
In additional to seeing status update, browsing connections, and search that you can already do with the web enabled app (check out my earlier blog post and video demo that covers the original feature set), here are three major enhancements you’ll find on the new native iPhone app:
