Facebook apps can now be made using cloud providers such as PHP Fog and Heroku. How can you get set up on these systems and create applications to use with Facebook? This talk will discuss getting started in each system and creating a very simple Facebook application – we’ll go over the code examples and demonstrate basic functionality. If you’re familiar with developing for Facebook, this talk will show you how to deploy those apps to the cloud. If you haven’t built any Facebook applications yet, this will get you started on that path.
Kirsten Jones has been working in software development for almost 20 years. After starting her geek life as a systems administrator and tool builder, she moved into software design at Cisco, where she stayed for several years before jumping into the Web 2.0 revolution. Her social and collaborative experience has ranged from Socialtext to the think tank AMI, to Netflix, and now LinkedIn. Her passion is in using facets and semantic ideas to bring more powerful browsing experiences to users. Kirsten has long been a fan of Freebase, building several different applications to leverage the power of their language and database. Her iPhone application (the Intersect for Netflix) demonstrates this focus, allowing anyone to browse the Netflix catalog using facets. Kirsten’s experience supporting and using OAuth-based REST APIs has made her a consistent advocate for better examples, tutorials and applications so developers can jump into development.
