RIA OpenSocial/Facebook App with Flex/Actionscript

Location: Sierra J Level:

The session will introduce the basics of building Facebook/OpenSocial apps using Flex/Actionscript. We plan to discuss Flex-specific issues and tricks we found while building Facebook Flex apps. We would also like to discuss the architecture and the challenge we found while creating an opensource library opensocial-actionscript-client, a Flex library for OpenSocial.

Topics of discussions:

  • Limitation & advantages of Flash-based apps on Facebook (such as limitations on sending invite)
  • FBAS (library for Facebook and Bebo)
  • Port apps from Facebook to Bebo using FBAS
  • Desktop session and widget session
  • Opensocial-actionscript-client (library for OpenSocial)
  • Architecture and design decision of opensocial-actionscript-client (Javascript API bridge vs. using REST API)
  • Code samples
