Dropbox doesn’t want to be a storage service. It wants to be the data layer uniting your information on all apps. To get more apps and enterprises integrated with its platform, it announced DBX, the six year-old startup’s first developer conference. To be held July 9th at San Francisco, you can request an invite for a $350 ticket to, DBX which could help Dropbox drive enterprise sales. Dropbox tells the three focuses of the one-day conference will be learning about newly launched features on its platform, giving developers a chance to meet and get help from Dropbox API engineers and designers, and highlighting what third-parties have built on top of Dropbox so far. One thing pretty unique about the conference is that you can’t buy your way in. You have to request an invite and wait to hear back if you’re accepted, then pay the $350 price. The format means it can pick and choose who is in attendance to maximize impact with developers and enterprises it wants to add to or keep on its service.
