We had so much fun last week at FinDEVr Silicon Valley in Santa Clara that we could do it all over again this week!

Presenting companies brought their A-Game; showing off their tech in unique and thought-provoking ways. And with presentations on two stages at once, we saw double the innovation over the course of the two-day show. Videos of the live presentations will be available in a few weeks on For now, here are a handful of pictures:

The Twitter conversation was unlike any we’ve seen at FinDEVr in the past. Check out our Techs on Twitter post, as well as other media coverage from the October 18 & 19 show:

And we may take fintech seriously, but we’re also pretty serious about having a good time. Foosball, corn hole, and giant Jenga were among the favorite games at the event. Here’s @miss__Haley beating me at a game.


Once again, thanks to all who blogged, tweeted, and attended to make this event a success. We’ll see you in New York in the spring of 2017!


FinDEVr Silicon Valley: Techs on Twitter

This post has been superseded at

TwitterLogo_blue_newNot to be outdone by the notoriously clever Tweeters of Finovate, the attendees of FinDEVr Silicon Valley 2016 produced more than their fair share of insights and observations on Twitter during the show. And for the first time, FinDEVr announced a pair of prizes for those technologists whose use of Twitter during the show was the most remarkable.

Taking home top honors for Most Active Tweeter at FinDEVr Silicon Valley was Bandit, known also by her Twitter handle @miss_haley. With more than 90 tweets over the two days of our developers conference, @miss_haley was hard to beat.


More than mere volume, @miss_haley’s knowledgeable and clever Tweets covered everything from the real-time animations of FinDEVr newcomer Cognitect, to the drama of the Jengawars, to pondering the challenge of voice authentication in an increasingly gender-diverse world.

Also winning one of our Twitter awards was David Pinski (@dapisnki). With tweeting recognized as the Most Effective Use of #FinDEVr, @dapinski impressed with his insightful comments about PwC and blockchain technology, as well as the “courageous and brave” presentation by MX’s Brandon DeWitt, his observations on the difficulty of balancing technology and business perspectives in a FinDEVr presentation, and his creation and awarding of the “Funniest Nerd of the Day” award to IBM’s Stefania Kaz.


Here are some of the other more memorable moments of FinDEVr Silicon Valley 2016 as tweeted by our attendees.










We hope you had much fun at FinDEVr Silicon Valley 2016 as we did. For more from the Tweeters of FinDEVr Silicon Valley, check out #FinDEVr on Twitter. And to keep up with all of our alums and their exciting new innovations, be sure to follow us @FinDEVr.

FinDEVr Silicon Valley: Celebrating the Best of the Builders

This post has been superseded at


After watching two days of live presentations from fintech innovators from around the world, the attendees at FinDEVr Silicon Valley 2016 have made their preferences plain. So many presenters received enthusiastic praise for the way they are solving problems and developing tools/APIs to make payments more efficient, security more effective and financial data more accessible. And there were a few companies that stood out from an impressive pack.

So without further ado, let’s take a look at the favorites (all chosen by audience vote, except the Press/Analyst favorite):

Crowd Favorite – Day One

  • MX for its heartfelt message on how it gets the necessary work done, both in fintech and in life

Crowd Favorite – Day Two

  • OCR Labs for its innovations in optical character recognition (OCR) and facial recognition (FR) technology and their application on web and mobile platforms.

Press/Analyst Favorite

  • 1787fp for its mobile app that helps consumers track and manage their finances and investments.

Favorite FinDEVr Alum

  • for its registered email and registered electronic contract technology.

From our presenters to our attendees to all the staff and others who participated in this year’s event, we truly could not do this without you. So give yourselves a pat on the back, raise a toast of something tasty, and mark your calendars as we take our developers conference to the Big Apple next spring for FinDEVr New York 2017, and then across the Atlantic for FinDEVr London 2017 in June.

We’re back! After taking FinDEVr on the road for a very successful inaugural New York show this spring, our fintech developers conference has returned to the Left Coast for two days of APIs, SDKs, and enough case studies, integrations, and code to choke a Python (see what I did there?).
