London Facebook Developer Garage Coming Wednesday 9th October

The London Facebook Developer Garage is coming up on Wednesday 8th October at Sun Microsystems, 45 King William Street, London. Sun are generously sponsoring the event again and are also providing free beer and pizza.

As well as the usual networking opportunities there’s a busy line-up of speakers:

  • Phil Clandillon and Steve Milbourne from Sony BMG talk about an application based competition they ran across Facebook and Bebo to promote Michael Jackson, lessons they’ve learnt, and what else they’re doing on the platforms.
  • Chris Thorpe from MySpace discusses the changover from Open Social 0.7 to 0.8, and why sometimes it still makes sense to use Javascript in normal applications.
  • I’ll be talking about Facebook Connect with a technical overview and a practical view of pros and cons.
  • Mat from Sun talks about what they’ve been doing with Zembly (a tool to build and host applications across multiple social platforms)
  • Toby from Nudge shows us their latest application, Spotted!
  • Iskandar from Nudge goes over the latest developments on the Facebook platform.

The event starts at 6:30pm and tickets are available from Eventbrite or at the door.
