Scouring the boards and sifting via 1000s of threads and hundreds of thousands of posts, Stephen and Patrick culled the subjects right down to forty three and that's the publication you're conserving on your hand. Patrick and Stephen are eminently certified within the activity having been in PayPal Developer Technical help for a number of years each one. either have represented PayPal a number of instances on the annual eBay stay confabs. and so they, greater than somebody at PayPal are at the developer entrance line, dealing with cell calls, turning round emails and tracking the net boards.
