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!
