StatusNet Developer Tutorial at OSCON 2011
Have you thought of a good social application? Want to create a social music Web site, a photo-sharing tool, or a distributed event system? Whether you're developing for the whole world or just for your team, you should attend our upcoming tuorial on Building Social Applications with StatusNet at OSCON 2011.
Not everyone knows that StatusNet is a great platform for making social software. The micro-casting model -- sending data to a opt-in group of followers -- is simple and powerful for a lot of applications. You can build new data types and UIs on top of StatusNet to make all kinds of applications.
This tutorial features three of the core developers of StatusNet -- myself, Evan Prodromou, the founder; Zach Copley, who's built everything from our Facebook bridge to our mobile phone clients; and Brion Vibber, the development lead who created much of the underlying software. You probably won't get a chance to be in the same room with the three of us again.
If you're at all interested in social software, in the micro-casting model, in using social software for the enterprise or for consumer sites, or just in learning about a cool piece of tech, I really recommend you register for the tutorial. You won't be sorry!
