Now, London...check. The Visa Developer Meetup group launched this December for the London dev community at Visa’s new London Innovation Center in Paddington.

The Visa Developer London Meetup event not only gave developers a close look at new payment demos inside the center, but it also introduced some European developers to capabilities offered through the Visa Developer Platform through a live coding session.

The session took the audience through building a Foreign Exchange application from scratch in just 20 minutes. The working application ran on a mobile device, and demonstrated how to take an input currency and return the equivalent amount in a second currency, adding in exchange pricing set by the user. The demo used Fuse Tools along with the Foreign Exchange Rate API to demonstrate.

 

 

The meet-up was well-attended, with people across the financial services and fintech landscape as well as representatives from merchants present. These developer events are extremely important for us, to ensure that we are able to learn what works and doesn’t from those developers who are actually building new innovations using our APIs.

These developers are on the front lines of new features in some of our favourite banking and merchant apps, so understanding their needs and listening to their feedback directly is invaluable to us.
