A record number of developers and entrepreneurs joined eBay Inc. technologists this weekend for the fifth annual eBay Developers Conference. Topline topics included blogs and wikis, AJAX, XUL and tagging.
"Designed to ignite discussion about the future of online commerce and communications," according to the company, the conference marks the first time developers from eBay, PayPal, ProStores, Shopping.com and Skype have come together to debate the technology and trends defining the evolution of the Internet. At the conference, eBay announced four new APIs and unveiled a contextual ad system, PayPal introduced a new Developer Hub and ProStores launched its first Developer Network.
"The eBay portfolio of businesses offers a powerful combination of commerce, payments, and communication tools for the new generation of developers and entrepreneurs," said Greg Isaacs, Director of the eBay Developers Program. "This conference celebrates the tens of thousands of developers in our extended community who are driving innovation and creating economic opportunities in creative, unexpected ways. Our goal is to give these developers the resources they need to succeed and to encourage them to push the boundaries of the Web."
Throughout the weekend, conference attendees were the first to hear about new tools and resources for eBay ecosystem developers. The eBay Developers Program introduced four forthcoming new APIs: an eBay Express Search API; an eBay Express Shopping Cart API; an eBay Product Info API, which includes eBay Reviews and Guides; and a Contextual Keywords API beta. These new APIs will offer developers further opportunities to integrate their solutions with eBay Express and to create innovative applications on the eBay platform. More detail about the newly announced APIs will be posted on the eBay Developers Program Web site, www.developer.ebay.com.
Conference attendees also learned that the eBay Affiliates Program will introduce a beta version of new contextual ad system, eBay AdContext. Built on eBay's relevant keyword selection technology, eBay AdContext is designed to give affiliates an automatic way to incorporate dynamic eBay content into their Web sites. The system scans the text of a Web site for keywords and returns relevant eBay content to the web page. For example, a Web site about sports could use eBay AdContext to display ads for sporting goods listings or eBay search results for memorabilia related to a specific sports team. When users click on the eBay ad, they arrive directly on the eBay site.
