    Presentation:

    Web Services for your Widgets and Gadgets

    Gadget/Widget platforms like live.com, Google Desktop, Apple Dashboard, and Yahoo! Widget Engine are a natural fit for using web services from third parties like eBay, because gadgets are great for monitoring the status of ever-changing data, such as the eBay marketplace. However, there are unique challenges that you will need to overcome in order to use web services in your gadget, such as security constraints, authentication, data overload, and more. This session will discuss how to use web services within live.com and similar platforms, and will dive in to some real-world examples of gadgets/widgets that use third-party web services.
