eBay Connect 2020
eBay Developers Program Celebrates 20 Years
This year we’re celebrating 25 years of eBay and 20 years of the eBay Developers Program! On November 20, 2000, we launched our first APIs along with the Developers Program and became the leading pioneer in the API world. APIs are first-class products at eBay. We continue to add capabilities into our public API portfolio so third-party developers in our eBay Developers Program can create powerful experiences and manage their eBay business at scale. Our goal is to empower developers, enhance the ecosystem of eBay applications, and add value for our buyers and sellers. THANK YOU for an incredible 20 years of supporting our vibrant developer community. Supporting the developer community is where our mutual interest is - your success is our success. We can’t wait to see what the next 20 years bring us.
eBay Connect 2020
This year we kick-off our annual eBay Connect Developer Conference virtually. We realize that this year is very different and we are all figuring it out together. Our first priority is to keep our community - our developers and employees - safe. We also wanted to give our developers updates on the program and how to get prepared for all the upcoming changes. Over the next three months, we will host webinars, publish content and give you updates to the program. We look forward to connecting and preparing you for the upcoming updates to the program.
