QuickBooks API now Easier, Open, Global, and FREE!

Last Monday (11/4/2013) evening, our CEO Brad Smith made some great developer focused announcements during his keynote at The Sleeter Group Accounting Solutions Conference. I am pretty sure there is not a recording of the keynote available, so I’ll include some “live” tweets, that way it’ll feel like you were there in person. (I have also include a summary of all the changes, be sure to scroll to the bottom of the post.)
