Matt Ackley Is The Senior Director Of eBay's "Developers Program" Which Employs More Than 10,000 Developers

eBay, The World's Online Marketplace, has more than 114 million registered users, 10,000 developers, and over 700 live, third-party applications.

Four years ago, eBay began allowing third parties to build applications that tap into eBay, and today eBay hosts one of the leading Web services platforms.

Through its developer program, eBay enables third parties to create cutting-edge Web services applications that benefit the buyers and sellers on eBay. At present, 40% of eBay's listings come through its API, which handles more than a billion Web services calls a month.

Ackley will discuss the rewards and challenges of building and maintaining one of the world's leading Web services platforms, and share insights and practical guidelines for others.
