Course Description

Social networking software receives the biggest Media Buzz in Information Technology. The Facebook platform is growing faster than any other computing platform - even faster than Google. This hands-on programming course covers social network computing based on 3 examples: Facebook, Twitter, OpenSocial (Google). We discuss the capabilities publically available through various programming API and quickly walk through the process to sign up for developer accounts, afterwards we download, install, and configure the development environment and show how to get a first set of applications implemented and distributed. Students receive hands-on experience in developing their own sample applications end-to-end. Based on practical examples we will discuss how social computing software can be used as development and hosting environment as well as in integrated marketing environment to i.e. promote mobile applications.
