    Presentation:

    Yahoo! Widgets powered by Yahoo! APIs

    Yahoo! Web Services enable developers to integrate their sites and applications with Yahoo!. Today Yahoo! offers APIs for mapping, search, shopping, the photo-sharing community Flickr, and more. This talk will give an overview of the services that Yahoo offers and show examples of how to build applications using these services.

    Yahoo's recent acquisition of Konfabulator opens up great opportunities for developers to run and create desktop widgets. Built using XML and Javascript, these mini-applications reside on your Windows or Mac desktop and give you quick and easy access to your favorite content. Dan Theurer will explain how to build a widget and walk through examples that show how to interact with Yahoo! Web Services using widgets.
