TOPIC: Building Social Ready Web Applications by Craig Walls
6:30 to 7:00 Pizza
7:00 Main Meeting
Abstract: Businesses are increasingly recognizing the value of connecting with their customers on a more personal level. Companies can utilize social networking to transition from “Big Faceless Corporation” to “Friend” by taking their wares to the online communities where their customers are. In this age of social media, those communities are found at social network sites such as Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn.
In this session, you will learn how to build rich web applications that interact with the major social networks. We will highlight the open source technology available for simplifying social media integration, and will show you how to add social features to your own applications.
Bio: Craig Walls has been professionally developing software for over 16 years (and longer than that for the pure geekiness of it). He is a senior engineer with SpringSource and is the author of Modular Java (published by Pragmatic Bookshelf) and Spring in Action and XDoclet in Action (both published by Manning). He’s a zealous promoter of the Spring Framework, speaking frequently at local user groups and conferences and writing about Spring and OSGi on his blog. When he’s not slinging code, Craig spends as much time as he can with his wife, two daughters, 5 birds and 3 dogs.
