OSDGD: Introduction to OpenSocial Presentation

OpenSocial Dev Garage Dallas is over, the mess has been cleaned up, and pretty much everyone has gone home. The pizza Traxo sponsored was delicious, the coffee Praxis Bridge provided helped get people going, and the CoHabitat venue rocked. There were a couple new faces, and I'm pretty sure we've added to the group of regulars who show up at this kind of stuff in Dallas.

For reference, here's a copy of the presentation slides from the morning session:

The idea was to get people up and running with an OpenSocial application as quickly as possible, so I skipped over the normally obligatory history, motivation and background in favor of getting to the good stuff right away. I think it worked out well, although I suspect that for a couple of people in the audience the information was too basic. It's always hard to decide on a target level, and I'm happy enough overall. I think getting a more detailed agenda with a presentation outline posted in advance would have helped people judge better.

Yes, thanks! I learned what I needed to know to get started with OpenSocial and met an old friend I lost touch with over ten years ago (before Twitter and FaceBook, of course)... plus many business and technical contacts - great event!
