eBay DevCon – Session List
Burrrr it’s a cold day today.
Today I am doing nothing but trying to nail down some issues for the eBay DevCon.
At the conference we will have a class room for 25 people and will be running 2 different hands on training labs:
Getting started building Skype applications
Using the App2App messaging API
We are writing the labs, that’s the easy bit.
The challenges come with what software to install on the machines, what development environment to use and getting hold of headphones.
Since we will share a training room with the PayPal guys, we need to ensure our lab doesn’t break theirs. Having done this many times in the past you’d be surprised at what can go wrong when you have several people running different labs from the same machine.
As well as the hand on training we also have a whole technical track dedicated to Skype development.
The sessions are:
Opportunities for Developers using Skypes API
Skype Certified! The 5Ws
The Skype ActiveX Components: Skype Development on Steroids
The Skype Application to Application Messaging API (App2App)
Building Voice Applications Using Voice XML
Servers and Plugins – The future of the Skype API
Using Skype to improve Buyer/Seller communication
I’m very excited about these sessions as not only will they cover in-depth technical information you can’t get anywhere else and won’t have heard before. The speakers will be the Program Manager or Developer responsible for these technologies. In other words, these guys are the bees knees.
You can get full description of all the tracks by visiting:

Incidentally thanks for responding yesterday to my question about Linux & Mac development, I have passed your response on and I will chase it up.
