I gave a talk at Mashery’s BAPI NY conference last week on the success of the open data initiative at Edmunds.com. I gave a webinar a few months back on the same subject. You can find the Edmunds API here. This is only the beginning 🙂
I was invited to speak at Google on some of the work I’ve done at Edmunds. The crowd was engaged and the questions were great. It’s very humbling to be surrounded by really smart people that like what you do.
Update Feb 13, 2011: Great feedback on the YouTube page. Please join in the conversation 🙂
I had the pleasure to speak at Velocity 2010 about the approach we used at edmunds.com to lessen the impact of 3rd-party code on the performance of our pages. The response has been overwhelming and it was heartening to see folks from Google talk about reaching similar conclusions on their own 🙂
Here’s my interview with Mac Slocum prior to my talk at Velocity 2010.
Update on January 11, 2011: I submitted a proposal to talk about the impact of the work we’ve done had on the business and the bottom-line for Velocity 2011. It would be great to go back and talk about the positive impact of our work 🙂
