EBay Offering Free API Usage

Just a quick note, finally Ebay are offering what appears to be free calls to their API system. They call it the Unified Procing Scheme and can be found at http://developer.ebay.com/roadmap/2005-Q1/unified-schema#documentContent.

This is great news, I have been yamering on in the past that I would not be using it whilst there is a charge to use it. I know I am not going to change the world, nor am I going to make Ebay Trillions of dollars. But I suspect there are thousands of people like me who would like to experiment with the API.

I lead the Chrome Developer Relations team at Google.

We want people to have the best experience possible on the web without having to install a native app or produce content in a walled garden.

Our team tries to make it easier for developers to build on the web by supporting every Chrome release, creating great content to support developers on web.dev, contributing to MDN, helping to improve browser compatibility, and some of the best developer tools like Lighthouse, Workbox, Squoosh to name just a few.

I love to learn about what you are building, and how I can help with Chrome or Web development in general, so if you want to chat with me directly, please feel free to book a consultation.

I'm trialing a newsletter, you can subscribe below (thank you!)
