SAN FRANCISCO – Square announced today that it will host Square Unboxed, its annual partner and developer conference, on May 12, 2022. Square Unboxed will be fully virtual and free to attend.
At the conference, Square will announce new products and partnerships from its developer platform and broader partner ecosystem. The virtual event will also feature a conversation between Block co-founder and CEO Jack Dorsey and Changelog founder Adam Stacoviak about Square’s vision for its developer platform and why it is central to the company’s strategy.

“Our platform and the developers that build on it have enabled Square to strategically expand the sizes and types of sellers we serve over the past few years,” said Square’s GM of Partnerships & Developer Platform, Vijay Vachani. “As Square continues to grow upmarket and work with increasingly diverse businesses and verticals, APIs like the ones we offer today – and the ones we’ll announce at Unboxed – provide developers and partners with tools to build customized solutions that sellers can leverage to grow their business.”
Square’s platform offers a suite of APIs and SDKs that enable developers to build software and hardware integrations that can service businesses of all types and sizes. Attendees will learn more about the latest API releases and how developers and the businesses they serve can strategically leverage the platform to grow with Square.
