When marketing, finance, and legislation collide, developers often get stuck with the short end of the stick. Instead of reinventing the wheel, there is an open source answer. Learn how developers can use the Freeside toolkit to create a flexible billing and payment controller. This talk will cover high-level configuration options, and provide more in-depth code reviews on key plugin sections of the Freeside kit, including:

  • Authentication – Integration with existing authentication schemas
  • Invoicing Terms – The how and when of charging, as well as meeting marketing’s dreams while keeping finance happy
  • Event Conditions – When and why do you perform an action?
  • Event Actions – What can you do?
  • Exports – Talking with everybody in the world
  • Services – What can you sell or bill for?
