About The Yahoo! Developer Network

The Yahoo! Developer Network’s (YDN) mission is to inspire developers and accelerate their innovation.  Over 500,000 developers visit YDN ( http://developer.yahoo.com ) every month to socialize, build products and learn new skills.

YDN enables developers to build innovative product experiences using powerful platform APIs, SDKs, and by leveraging its widely used open source software and tools. Developers learn from the vast collection of documentation, support, blogs, forums, and outreach.
