1Password was on stage at Dropbox’s first developer conference! [Update with video]

DBX logoIt’s not every day that you get to share a stage with Dropbox’s founder and CEO, Drew Houston. But this was just such a day for us, as AgileBits was invited to speak at Dropbox’s first-ever developer conference in San Francisco.

The conference is called DBX, and Dropbox invited our CEO, Jeff Shiner, to be a guest speaker during the opening keynote. During Drew’s keynote about his company and where it’s going, he asked Jeff onto the stage for a bit to tell a sold-out room of developers about 1Password, how Dropbox helps us do our job, and how our customers use Dropbox to effortlessly sync their data across all their devices.

Oh and the best part? When introducing us and the challenge of creating and remembering too many passwords, Drew told the room and the world that “1Password is the best way in the world to solve this problem.” Check it out in the video below.

Dropbox also announced some great new features that we’re pretty excited about, like Drop-ins and the new Datastore API. There is also a great lounge area, developer sessions throughout the afternoon, and of course some music to wrap up the evening.

All in all, it’s been a great experience and Jeff’s talk went over really well, including the jokes. If you’d like to see the keynote, I hear it will be available online tomorrow at Dropbox’s DBX site. We’d like to thank Drew and everyone at Dropbox for this fantastic opportunity.

See below for the video of the entire Dropbox keynote (and further below for a gallery I shot of the conference). Our own Jeff Shiner was the first guest on stage, and it starts around the 16:00 mark.
