eBay developer resources
A few weeks ago I wrote about the announcement of the merger of the eBay, PayPal, and Magento developer platforms and communities under the X.commerce banner.
As many of us are getting up to speed on eBay opportunities now rather than waiting until after the merger, I thought it might be useful to gather together some of the important resources one would need to learn about and use eBay developer technologies. I will write a separate post looking at Magento developer resources, too.
Here are some of the top level sites and information you should check out as you start doing eBay-based development:
- The eBay Developers Program homepage is your logical starting point; links to API information, documentation, support, a quick start guide (when in doubt go here first), code samples in various programming languages, tools and SDKs, and much more.
- If you aren’t already a member, you can join the eBay Developer Program for free. Click here to read about the benefits, and here to join .
- Subscribe to the eBay Developers Program blog for the latest official information. Click here for the feed.
- You might also want to subscribe to and read the eBay Tech Blog for in depth information on how the eBay system is constructed, maintained, and operated.
