Legos, Kid Lucky and the Skype screensaver at the eBay Developers Conference
Skype is wrapping up at the eBay Developers Conference. This was our first big developer event. We still got some unconference sessions to go on Monday, but the bulk of the work is done.
We haven’t blogged that much about it, since we’ve been really packed at days with meetings, booth work, sessions, networking and anything else that goes on at such events. The developer community interest in Skype has been really great and it’s been a great venue for us to talk with Skype developers as well as folks from eBay, Paypal, Skype and the larger eBay developer community. Thanks to everyone who took their time to work with us to provide their feedback, comments, questions, play in the labs with Skype API.
We’ll follow this up with our own summaries soon. Meanwhile, check out the [Devcon website](http://www.ebaydevcon.com/), [blog](http://www.ebaydevcon.com/blog/) and [the Chatter](http://www.ebaychatter.com/) for other views. You can find all the materials and presentations on the event site.
Some fun bits…
* sorry to all those who wanted a Skype developer zone t-shirt after we ran out of those. They were quite popular, but since somehow a large part of them was shipped to Kentucky (?!?!??!?? don’t ask), we’ll receive them after the conference is over
* there was a Lego competition during one of the lunches where you had to build… anything. Skype was also featured in some of the productions. Thanks guys. Our favourite one is below.
* Lenn kicked off his part of the keynote with the [Kid Lucky](http://www.skype.com/share/stories/music-to-my-mouth/) video. It was fun playing it to the nearly 800 folks present. Hopefully this illustrated what Skype is first and foremost all about — people talking to other people, and everything else comes after that.
