At The Nerdery’s next webinar, senior developer Dan K and front-end developer Thomas M will give a nerd’s eye view of Facebook enhancements announced at the F8 conference, including changes in how users can display their info and new avenues for finding content.
We’ll cover the still-unreleased Timeline, billed as the “story of your life on a single page,” and the coming of Open Graph, a sort of map that reveals everything users connect to. Also new, Ticker will allow users to communicate “lightweight” musings and actions whenever, and News Feed – which sounds simple enough – has a new more-complicated algorithm. We’ll also touch on new social plug-in features, as well as Heroku, Facebook’s cloud-hosting partner.
Program alert: On Nov. 29 and Dec. 1 (two weeks after this F8 recap webinar), we’ll stay on the subject of Facebook by addressing even more significant changes coming that will affect the code of existing Facebook applications (and therefore, they’ll affect, say, about a billion of you). Read our initial take here and stay tuned for all-new webinars that’ll cover some fairly dramatic game-changers coming soon to a Facebook near you.
The Nerdery’s monthly webinars are freebies all about sharing what we see in emerging technologies. Please join us and consider our nerd cred as an extension of your own.
