Tying it All Together: Implementing the Open Web

3:30pm Friday, 09/19/2008
Topic: Development
Location: 1A08 & 10

The web is currently defining how sites will communicate with each other. OpenID, OAuth, OpenSocial and PortableContacts protocols are becoming the web’s “open stack” and they are becoming more important each week. It’s important to know how they work together before implementing them. Plaxo CTO and community leader Joseph Smarr will lead a session explaining how these pieces fit together.
