Interview: Renaud Visage from Eventbrite about monetizing a Facebook application with Google Checkout

In today's interview, Renaud Visage, CTO of Eventbrite, an online events registration application, explains how he uses the Google Checkout API in Eventbrite, and describes Events Plus, their cool new Facebook application, that is just like Facebook Events but lets you collect money online for your events.

Eventbrite is written in Python, and Renaud does not yet use Evgeniy Tarassov's excellent Google Checkout Python library, but plans to start using it soon. They use the Checkout HTML API, and since the Facebook Markup Language allows for regular form tags, integrating Google Checkout in their Facebook application required no work at all (just make sure that you use absolute urls).

Try out the regular Eventbrite application:
