Over the last year the Yahoo! Developer Network has opened up dozens of sites and services to external software developers, with APIs for Yahoo! Search, Flickr, del.icio.us, Yahoo! Maps, and many others. More recently Yahoo! has started adopting microformats on Yahoo! Local and upcoming.org.
Simon and Paul will be peeking behind the Yahoo! firewall, showing how these services are created and discussing some of the lessons learned in releasing them to the public. They will also show how a company can make use of web services internally to solve real-world technical problems, encourage innovation, and make work more enjoyable.
Yahoo has recently decided to update its services. I don’t actually like Yahoo new graphics and the GUI but this is really marginal.
The real problem with this Yahoo services upgrade is represented by many users who were not able to find the Notepad service previously offered into the Yahoo email.
Kyle and Dylan have an open discussion of the pains of debugging code and the lack of permanence of online content. Also: Jeremy Keith hates Yahoo, the death of the news media, the Library of Alexandria, and Statgirl lets us down.
