Perhaps no company understands relationships and revenue better than eBay. With more than 100 million active users globally, the total value of goods sold on eBay in 2011 was $68.6 billion—more than $2,100 every second. Each transaction was managed by one or more eBay APIs. To share best practices for API management, WSO2 will conduct a webinar entitled, “WSO2 & eBay Case Study - How eBay Uses the Open Source WSO2 ESB to Process Over 1 Billion Transactions Per Day.” WSO2 speakers Paul Fremantle, WSO2 co-founder and CTO, and Chris Haddad, vice president of technology evangelism, will be joined by guest presenter Abhinav Kumar, senior manager of the services platform at eBay. The session will be held Thursday, June 7, from 9:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. PST.
