Social apps have become very popular in the last years. In this session I will show you how to create an OpenSocial app which can be used by over 900 million users on many social networks around the world. After introducing you to the main concepts behind OpenSocial I will demonstrate live that it is easier than you think to develop a rich social app. Additionally to the basics like accessing the user's social graph or integration with external APIs, I will also highlight features that will help you with a quick viral distribution, tight integration into the user's social experience and access through mobile devices.

Big disconnect between the title of the presentation and the actual content. Mister Hofmann was just playing with open social javascript api live...

Last slot of of the conference is a tough spot. The talker had some little issues with his code. He still managed to deliver an interesting session.

Enjoyed learning about the general overview of OpenSocial widgets, and some examples of its application. I would have preferred a more "static" presentation with code samples. We might have covered more of the capabilities of the API
