I went to the Sydney PayPal Developer Days yesterday and have to say I was very very impressed. PayPal is clearly interested in growing their brand in Australia and what better way to do so then giving developers the tools to make PayPal easy to implement for their clients.
Free PayPal Certification
The big drawcard for the PayPal Developer Days is that you get a promotional code that lets you sit the PayPal Certification tests for free. That’s $300 USD worth of value. Given that I’ve been developing some solutions that use PayPal over the past few weeks I would have gone to the conference anyway, but the more I think about it the more I like the idea of being certified. Primarily I’ll be interested in seeing how much new business it can generate.
