I've been invited to speak alongside Ron Hess at salesforce.com's Dreamforce event in San Francisco next month about my experiences integrating Salesforce and other AppExchange applications with Google using the GData API. Here are the details:
Session Title: Business Mashups: Best of the Web APIs
Track: New AppExchange Developer
Date and Time: 10/11/2006 9:00 AM
Session Description: AppExchange has always been a powerful platform for creating mashups, and the new platform features make it more capable than ever mixing Internet services. This session will provide an introduction to some of the more popular Web APIs, including API's from Google and Yahoo, and show how they can be leveraged inside of your AppExchange apps. Presentations will include sample code showing demonstrating these services, as well as example mashups.
The combination of the AppExchange API and GData provides an incredibly powerful platform for creating applications that harness the best of what salesforce.com calls The Business Web. I hope to see you at the show.
