We just received some stats from our friends over at QuickBooks—the number of apps used by the Small Business Market is projected to grow threefold in the next few years. The QuickBooks Online Community is comprised of more than 3.2 million small businesses, 200 thousand accountants/bookkeepers, and thousands of 3rd party app developers. That’s a lot of apps and accounts with access to sensitive data!
With similar visions and missions targeted at developers, it’s about time we joined forces to share tips and resources across communities. Join Yubico and Intuit’s David Leary, host of the Intuit Developer Friday Morning Hangout, this Friday at 9am PT for a chat about YubiKeys and why security is vital to the QuickBooks Online Ecosystem of small business owners, accountants, bookkeepers, and 3rd party app developers.

Yubico Developer Program Updates
The Yubico team is continuously improving the Yubico Developer Program with input and feedback received directly from our community members. We appreciate hearing from so many of you since announcing our revamp plans earlier this year. Top requests include more instructional content, code samples in additional languages, a path to obtain early access to alpha/beta hardware, guidance on how to connect with other developers, and general clarity on the developer program. We’re actively working on each of these areas and look forward to your continued feedback and input.
In case you missed it: We recently hosted three instructional webinars on FIDO2. Also, today, we expanded our mailing list to include the option to select the types of email communications you choose to receive from us. The different sub-categories include a Developer Program Updates newsletter, product announcements, surveys, event invitations, and alpha/beta program invitations. Fear not — this doesn’t mean we’re going to email you at all hours of the day. It’s important to us that you only receive the types of communications you care about most.
You can join the Yubico Developer Program mailing list here. Shortly after, you’ll receive a welcome email and the ability to manage your email preferences.
