Introducing the New Yahoo Developer Network Website

By Amotz Maimon, Chief Architect, Yahoo

Today, we’re excited to announce the new Yahoo Developer Network (YDN) website. Supporting external developers with open source and open APIs has long been key to Yahoo’s success. With over 500,000 developers using Yahoo APIs, we needed a new home to support our developer community. The updated site significantly improves the experience for developers and advertisers using Yahoo APIs such as Search and advertising (Gemini).

What’s new?

  • Revamped experience: Based on your feedback, we’ve redesigned the site to make it easier for you to use our products. Our new design is mobile-friendly with an easier to use navigation and structure.

  • Documentation: With our new Getting Started Guides, it’s now faster to create applications using Yahoo APIs. We’re also featuring code examples in different languages to get you up and running as quickly as possible.

  • Developer Forums: This is the place to find answers or ask questions which may arise when developing with Yahoo APIs.

  • OAuth 2.0 Support: OAuth 2.0 is the next evolution of the OAuth protocol. We now support OAuth 2.0 for newer Yahoo APIs like Gemini API.

  • Attribution Guidelines: When you build a product using Yahoo APIs, follow the attribution guidelines posted here.

Ole is such an intelligent sheep. Although he normally refuses to deal with earthly problems he supports my brother in app development. He finds solutions to the toughest problems! He never ceases to amaze us! So I sometimes put him beside me to have his light of wisdom shine on me!

I need new models for future product previews, but searching for my preferred fashion style through the shop is a huge pain in the butt because ,for me, it’s hard to find. So I really need some help; if you know of anyone who specializes in urban punk and modern occult fashion, please let me know! I’ve also got some visual aid in my favs tag here.

Noted, not all of the posts fall under the two styles above, but they still tickle my devlish fancy. Pro / not pro, male and female products welcome. I need all I can get ;n; much thanks in advance
