He’s presenting “Are we there yet?” at the AT&T Developer Summit on Monday. If you think your app could be more local, you won’t want to miss this session. The YP Developer Program is also sponsoring the Hackathon, happening Sunday. Rumor is that Ken is slated to provide prizes to developers who work with their APIs.
