The first day of the conference will take place at The Palace of Fine Arts Theater. Key talking points include OAuth, Streaming, Geolocation, Business Strategies, Mobile Integration, Roadmaps and lots more. The second day of the event will move to Herbst Pavilion in Fort Mason for a 24-hour “Hack Day” for Twitter third-party developers. This will be the first time that the developers and the Twitter’s team will meet under one roof and all the questions will be answered face to face.
There is also a hint that commercial account for businesses on twitter will make debut on the conference. Twitter’s head of product management and monetization, Anamitra Banerji will be speaking on commercial account. The Dev Con will end with a party - free beer, free food and music all night long. On the Chirp page there is a hidden area (http://chirp.twitter.com/secret_page.html), which teaches you how to make the Magical Origami Chirp Bird, if you are into that sort of things.
