We’re pleased to announce our next event, taking place on Wednesday 16th February, at our regular TechHub venue (right by Old Street station).
Confirmed speakers so far include HTML5 expert Rob Hawkes talking about the canvas and animation, FDGL committee members Tom Gallagher from Logicode on using the Places API (with Ruby in particular), John Cole from Adknowledge on Facebook Credits policy and how it affects developers, and Simon Cross who spoke for us in August on the BBC iPlayer’s Facebook integration, but now having been working for Facebook themselves for six months has agreed to talk about the Places API, Operation ‘Developer Love’, and take general questions from the floor for as long as we can allow.
We’ll also have as usual Iskandar Najmuddin, Technical Director at Syncapse (formerly Nudge) briefing us on the latest platform updates, Dave Nattriss, freelance developer and FDGL secretary and webmaster, running down what’s hot on Facebook, and an introduction with Facebook product updates from Todd Chaffee, the chairman of the FDGL committee.
The last few month’s events each sold out within days, so be quick. We’ll have beer, pizza, possibly some Facebook swag, and will go for after-drinks in nearby bar C.A.M.P.
