Last month’s Social App Workshop was a huge success. With a sold out crowd of over 150 people filling the basement of our new office, a great lineup of presenters and some fun coding in the afternoon it surpassed our expectations. Social App Workshop is a hacker event for new and experienced developers working on Twitter & Facebook apps. With a combination of presentations and coding the workshop brings developers together to work on social apps.
The morning was spent with a combination of 10 min talks and 30 min talks from Facebook, Twitter, Heroku, Apigee, Twilio, and Abraham Williams. After getting everyone amped up in the morning, we broke into groups in the afternoon to code up fun projects. Projects ranged from sample apps using oauth for twitter to a wake up call service for travelling moms.
If you weren’t able to make it, we’ve posted all the videos of the talks and embedded them below as well.
We’re working with Dave Nielsen to hold additional Social App Workshops, both here in San Francisco as well as around the world. If you have ideas or would like to see this type of event in your town, leave us a comment and let us know!
