SitePoint PHP Blog:
Adding Products to Your eBay Store with the Trading API
January 13, 2015 @ 12:50:14

The SitePoint blog has posted the next part of their "using the eBay trading API" series today (part three) showing you how to add products to your store via their API.

In this third and final part of our eBay Trading API series, we'll be building the product adding functionality into our application. Now that we're done with the store settings, we can begin with writing the code for the controller that would handle the creation of products.

He walks you through the code to create the "new" action on your Slim controller, build the view to gather the product information and handle the upload of product images with the Dropzone Javascript library. Also included is the code to get the current category list (to populate a dropdown list) and the code needed to create the product, both in your database and sending it back to the eBay API for insertion. This finishes the series about using this API, but you can get more information on the API itself though its documentation. The full code for the tutorial series is available on GitHub.

SitePoint PHP Blog:
Configuring Your Store's Settings with the eBay Trading API
January 12, 2015 @ 11:18:22

The SitePoint PHP blog has posted the next article in their "eBay Trading API" tutorial series today. In this new tutorial they show you how to configure your store's settings.

In part 1, we explained the different parts of eBay's developer dashboard and configured our test application. We also created our database. Now we're ready to create a project. In this part, we'll focus on store settings. In part 3, we'll add new products to our store.

They include the "composer.json" contents you'll need to install all of the libraries they'll use for the tutorial. With those installed they start in on the code, creating a basic Slim application that uses Twig views and some custom configuration options. Then he starts in on the classes, creating an "Ebay" class to handle the application settings and creating a "post" method to handle the API request. He adds in a few other helper methods and builds a database object/query to get the application details from the database. Next up are the templates for the main page and the controller to handle the default, session and token requests. He adds in some additional route configurations, makes a "view action" for the store settings and to request the user preferences from the API.

SitePoint PHP Blog:
Introducing eBay's Trading API - Setting Up
January 06, 2015 @ 12:58:43

The SitePoint PHP blog they've posted the first part of a new series about using the eBay API as a part of a product management application. In part one they start by getting things set up on the eBay trading API and creating the database you'll need for the rest of the series.

In this tutorial series, I'll walk you through Ebay's Trading API. The Trading API allows you to build applications that can be used for selling in Ebay. Here are some examples of things you can do with the API: retrieve store information, update store preferences, add products to a specific eBay store, end product listings, update product price and retrieve product information. In this tutorial, we'll be creating an app that allows users to create a product on eBay through the use of the API.

They start by helping you register an application on the eBay developer site and configure the settings to match your needs. They link to some of the tools you can use during your development and some of the headers/content you'll need to set to make your requests. The tutorial wraps up with the SQL needed to create the database backend for your store's settings, products, listings and some sample data to insert.

Zend Developer Zone:
OSCON Wrapup The Party's Over
July 31, 2006 @ 18:25:04

Wrapping up his, well, wrap-ups of this year's OSCON in Oregon, Cal Evans has this final installment - a look at the final day and the aftermath.

The goddess' of the O'Reilly Conference Team have yelled "cut" the set is struck and everybody has gone home. Speakers are busily reviewing the evaluation forms and tuning their presentations for the next round and the attendees are sorting through the T-Shirts. (Keepers or dust-rags) Let's glance over our shoulder at what was OSCON06.

He points out a link to the Flickr feed of his pictures from the conference - including pictures of his (now infamous) "PHP trading cards" (which he includes links to the Word documents of).

Cal talks about getting to Rasmus and George Schlossnagle's talks about enjoying the "PHP Lightning Talks" quite a bit. There's mention of the conference all, laid out in all of its corporate splendor and his note about a relatively glitch-free conference.

Wez Furlong's Blog:
PHP, the trading card game!
July 24, 2006 @ 13:40:53

Keeping track of people's faces at conferences can be a daunting task, but on PHP developer has his own method. Cal Evans (of the Zend Developer Zone) has created his own Flash cards of the "who's who" in the PHP community. Wez Furlong has this post documenting the fact.

Cal Evans of Zend's DevZone accidentally revealed his php community who's who flash cards (so that he can put faces to names at the conference)--and it looks just like a trading card game.

Luckily for you, Terry Chay was on hand to document them. You can see more of these on Terry's flickr stream.

Wez comments that there also seemed to be problem with the run (more than one Zak?).
