Yelp Tech Talk: Selling Everything and Anything on Yelp

Talk Topic: Selling Everything and Anything on Yelp
Talk abstract: Yelp is the best way to find local businesses, but we're also the best way to get a haircut delivered or book a pizza appointment! (Wait, did we get that right?) Join us for a discussion about how we perform tens of thousands of real-time transactions every day, ranging from taco delivery and dinner reservations, to salon appointments and bottles at the club. Alex L. will speak about what makes Yelp Commerce work, why we're excited about it, and how we plan to grow it even more.
At our tech talk, we're providing food and drinks, and raffling off an iPad Mini w/Retina, so remember to bring your CS or engineering resume to get a raffle ticket!
