    Title

    Technical Challenges and Issues Solved to Create the New eBay Developer Platform

    Abstract

    An "Open" strategy encourages participation: let developer community build apps for your users. Architecturally though, this approach is radically different than the traditional arch where the entire site is built and operated by internal developers. This talk focus on the challenges of building an "open platform" and how eBay treated those challenges when it opened up its platform to developers.

    Summary

    Participation is one of the important principals of Web 2.0. To encourage participation often Web 2.0 sites adopt an "Open" strategy: Allow your developers to build the application for your end user.

    Architecturally thought, this approach is radically different than the traditional architecture where the entire site is built, deployed and operated by the company internal team. Some of the aspect of architecture that should be examined in any Open architecture are:

     

    1.Overall System Architecture

    2.Deployment

    3.Development Cycle and Testing

    4.Dependency Management and Graph

    5.Security

    6.Performance

    7.Domain Specific API

    8.Events and Messaging

    9.Internationalization

    10.State Management, Data Access

    This talk focus on how eBay dealt with these challenges when it opened its Selling 

    Manager platform to developer community.
