We're at EBay Town Hall for the opening session of Joomla World Conference 2012.
One of the VP's is talking about their use of open source – specifically Joomla!. They use and contribute to OS projects. It allows them to move at the right speed of investment.
EBay – 10M Active users, $70B worth of goods sold, 20% cross border sales
75Billion dbase calls every day!
They didn't pick Joomla because they liked the color scheme (they are the same)… (geek humor)
EBay is contributing back to the Joomla community on a regualar basis.
Its going to be a great conference! More to come later…
