Shopping made easy for developers at Google I/O

Thursday, May 5, 2011 | 10:19 PM

The Google I/O developer conference is coming up next week, on May 10-11, 2011 in San Francisco, California. The first day of the conference will feature the first-ever Commerce track, and we want to give you sneak preview of the Google Shopping Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) session.

Shopping APIs have two main components: Content and Search. The Content API makes it easy to upload items as well as quickly change price or availability of your items. The Search API brings the power of Google search to your e-commerce website. In this session, we will walk you through code samples and various use cases for uploading data to Google using the Content API for Shopping. We also show you live demos of retail sites using Search API for Shopping and Google Commerce Search to power e-commerce on their site.

We are excited about Google I/O and look forward to seeing you in San Francisco.
