Last week Sophie Major, Jose Palazon and Chris Heilmann went to Grenoble, France to introduce the Yahoo Developer Network to the local developer community. It was the first Yahoo event of this kind in the city in the heart of the Alps and we are happy to pronounce it a success.

All in all it was a great experience and we hope to be back soon and see how local companies, startups, and developers are able to use our offerings to build something much easier than before.
