So many sellers on Etsy wanted to learn how to create their own applications that the company had to turn away applicants to its new educational program. Etsy is offering a class to show how sellers could build Etsy Apps using its API - over 900 people signed up.

Etsy promised to show students how to program using the Etsy API in a free 4-week class on basic web programming on Codelesson.com. At the end of the sessions, students would know how to display their Etsy listings on their own site, search for listings all over Etsy by keyword and price, or search only in their own shop, and add "cool" animation effects to their web pages.

Etsy accepted the first 200 students and said it is putting the rest of the applicants on a wait list for a future session of the course.
