Opening up the Social Web - Standards that are bridging the Islands

A session at devLink Technical Conference 2011

Wednesday 17th August, 2011

4:00pm to 5:00pm (EST)

Social networks are not closed off to the rest of the web anymore. Various standards like ActivityStreams, PubSubHubbub, WebFinger, OpenSocial, Salmon, OEmbed, XAuth or OExchange are emerging to open them up to other websites and projects like Diaspora or Status.NET are already using them in production. I will introduce these protocols, show how they work together, how you can benefit from them and give an outlook on how they can possibly change the world of social networks.
