    • 26. Don’t look for features. Concentrate on one thing
      Don’t look to solve everything
    • 27. You only have 24 hours
    • 28. Find things that already work
      And put them together
    • 29. Show us what can be built using the systems we (and others) offer.
    • 30. http://developer.yahoo.com
    • 31. http://www.github.com/
    • 32. To build a typical web hack you need data, access and an interface
    • 33. Yahoo! has opened up its data
    • 34. Search (BOSS), Flickr,
      Geo, Social, Mail, Messenger

    • 35. And so have others
    • 36. Programmable web lists 2182 APIs in their API directory
      Twitter, Facebook, Google, …
    • 37. To access these you can use YQL
    • 38. YQL is a SQL-Like Language that lets you …
    • 39. … filter, combine, tweak data across hundreds of Web Services.
      http://developer.yahoo.com/yql/console
    • 40. How will you build a system to calculate distance between two places?
    • 41. Use Vincenty's formulae
    • 42. Or use YQL
    • 43. Select kilometers FROM geo.distance where place1=“lucknow” AND place2=“kanpur”
    • 44.
    • 45. YQL has more to it
    • 46. There’s also Yahoo Pipes to do this visually
    • 47. http://pipes.yahoo.com/
    • 48. Data however is not enough.
    • 49. You also need working interfaces
    • 50. Technologies are easy:
      HTML, CSS, Javascript
    • 51. Making it work on all browsers and OS is tricky
    • 52. YUI
    • 53. http://developer.yahoo.com/yui
    • 54. What about reach?
    • 55. You can build and wait for people to come
    • 56. Or build where people are already there
    • 57. YAP
      http://developer.yahoo.com/yap
    • 58. Presenting your hack
    • 59. Do not show us slides about your hack
    • 60. Instead show us what you have done
    • 61. Technical glitches happen
    • 62. Have a plan-B
    • 63. And once you are done
    • 64. Keep your hack live for others to see
