PayPal together with some other partners are currently hosting a developer competition with prizes of over $160,000. For more information check out the PayPal X challenge web site.
To give you more information about the challenge and to introduce you to the PayPal and Yahoo APIs to be used in your submissions we invite developers to join us for a developer evening in East London in the newly opened TechHub in Old Street. The TechHub is located near Old Street Station (Exit 5) - 10 metres down the road. Strangely enough the map here is wrong, please use this link to see it on Google Maps instead.
John Lunn from PayPal and Christian Heilmann of the Yahoo Developer Network will walk you through the APIs and answer your questions.
This is your chance to learn tricks of the trade and to get well on the way to be the winner of some great cash prizes and build the future of online payments.
Following the presentations we organised food and drinks to aid the mingling.
See you there!

About The Yahoo! Developer Network
YDN’s mission is to inspire developers, accelerate Y! innovation and to be the daily go-to platform for developers globally, inside and outside of Yahoo!. We encourage developers to sample a buffet of the best technologies not only from Yahoo!, but from other major tool providers. This is to allow developers to innovate across multiple platforms and utilize a wide variety of technologies so together everyone can innovate and push the envelope of what's possible. Every month, more than 550,000 developers visit YDN to socialize, build and learn. Our community also hosts exciting large-scale events around the world, such as Open Hack (for all developers) and HackU's (for universities), where developers of all backgrounds are invited to collaborate through code and creativity in person. We look forward to having you join us!
