Dropbox planning first developer conference this July

Summary:Developers (as well as Dropbox team members) will be able to gain more visibility into what other developers are building for the cloud storage service.

Dropbox is speeding up the evolution of its cloud-based services by planning its first ever developer conference.

Dubbed "DBX," the event will be held at Fort Mason in San Francisco on Tuesday, July 9.

Developers will be informed about the latest releases and capabilities of the Dropbox Platform as well as meet the engineering and design teams working on the Dropbox APIs.

Thus, developers (as well as Dropbox team members) will be able to gain more visibility into what other developers are building with Dropbox.

But the cloud storage provider is starting off small with this event. Tickets are said to be limited, and interested developers will need to apply to attend -- as well as fork over $350 for the admittance fee.

Dropbox has been busy beefing up its portfolio of services lately -- notably by revamping services for businesses as well as adding some new ones through acquisitions, such as Mailbox .

Such moves puts the Northern California startup on par with the likes of Box and Evernote as these rising private companies slowly but surely put bigger cloud-based apps giants (say, Google) on guard.
