Stripe.com has available an API (application program interface) that puts handling credit card payments on-line within easy reach of developers - for individuals as well as small, medium and large organizations.
Bypassing expensive and burdensome PCI-compliant servers and software, Stripe uses a token technology where a special one-time key is used as a go-between.
Using the token, the code determines if the credit payment was accepted or denied and, of course, other details.
Stripe's API is available with easy-to-use code for Java, PHP, Ruby, Python, and Curl.
Stripe is used by thousands of websites and apps.
Stripe is international.
Working programs will be demoed and the source code will be available.
Attendees hoping for thousands of lines of complex code will be disappointed.
Newbies will find that Stripe is rather easy to implement.
Experienced developers will find the Stripe API to have a rich feature set.
