  • We are pleased to release version 2.2 of the Yahoo! Application Platform. Several new features and enhancements are included with this version of YAP that allow developers to present a better experience to and drive more social interaction between users.

    New Preview view

    Within the gadget XML file, we have added support for a new view type, Preview. The Preview view, if included, will be displayed to users who have not signed into Yahoo! or have not yet given the app permission to access their user data or broadcast updates.

    You can use this view type to provide an introduction to your app and entice users to log in. You can provide permission for your application to be personalized and thus generate updates to the users social graph.

    Hadoop project founder Doug Cutting gives us his unique insight and perspective into how the project has evolved over the last 4 years, as new sub-projects have grown up and out. He then give us a glance at how he sees things changing going forward as the data management industry more broadly embraces Hadoop for information and analysis. Doug is the creator of numerous successful open source projects, including Lucene, Nutch, and Hadoop. Doug joined Cloudera in 2009 from Yahoo!, where he was a key member of the team that built and deployed a production Hadoop storage and analysis cluster for mission-critical business analytics.

    As the demand for cloud-based analysis of large data sets explodes, customers of Amazon Web Services have wanted to leverage Hadoop in the cloud. Last year AWS introduced enterprise-ready Amazon Elastic MapReduce, which manages the complex and time-consuming set-up, management and tuning of both Hadoop clusters and the compute capacity upon which they sit. A user can instantly spin up large Hadoop job flows and begin processing within minutes. Peter Sirota is the General Manager of Amazon Elastic MapReduce.

Hear how we’re scaling Hadoop to handle larger clusters, growing application complexity, and evolving business needs. Eric Baldeschwieler is Vice President of Hadoop at Yahoo!.

  • In addition to Yahoo! Fantasy Football and Baseball, Basketball and Hockey data are now available through the Yahoo! Fantasy Sports API.

    The game codes are listed in the Game resource section of the Fantasy Sports API Guide.

    Currently, the APIs support retrieval of such data as game, league, team, and player. The APIs are based on a RESTful model. Resources (like game, league, team, player) and collections (like games, leagues, teams, players) form the building blocks for these APIs. (Read the initial blog post for more information.)

    If you need help or have suggestions about how we can improve these services, please post a message in the YDN Fantasy Sports developer forum.

  • Hope everyone had a chance to check out this article — Is Yahoo Dead? I Don't Think So. Who Else With This Scale Can Be Neutral? — from John Battelle, key personality in the Web 2.0 movement, co-creator of the Web 2.0 conference, Valley innovator, and CEO of Federated Media.

    We had a good meeting with John, and it's nice that he has picked up on the same potential we see to transform Yahoo! technology into an open platform that the developer and publisher community can really tap into.

    We do think we have something unique to offer, between our amazing audience around the world, great properties, and wealth of data. We’re excited, and we also think we’ve got some technologies that are specifically designed to make it easy for you to get creative and innovative.

    Just a few examples to think about before you go read John’s post:

    • YQL: The Yahoo! Query Language lets you query, filter, and join data across any web data source or service on the web.
    • YUI: A library of JavaScript utilities
