meet the developer whisperer

tooting the eBay developer community horn -

"eBay retooled its technology platform to scale for rapid growth. Now it
hopes a thriving community of outside developers can use that platform to keep
the company growing into its second decade."

plus, I love reading an article that makes it seem like working on our platform evangelism team is like working at the zoo or inside a really big circus tent:

" ... senior manager of platform evangelism at eBay (i.e., the guy responsible for the care and feeding of the developer program)."

Cesar Millan, meet Adam Trachtenberg.
