Widgets and Plug-ins for Social Sites

In this presentation, Matt Biddulph, CTO at Dopplr discusses how they worked with Facebook and also JavaScript (using JQuery) to create the social widgets and plug-ins that are essential to Dopplr’s make-up.

Matt also spoke about other critical stages in the development of Dopplr – including how they used the internet as a platform, and how they deal with user identities.

This session is from Future of Web Apps London 2007, hosted by Carsonified. You can listen to the entire MP3 and download Matt’s presentation at the FOWA past events page.

The next FOWA is in Miami this February 28th – more details at the usual place!

  1. Honestly, it feels like this blog sometimes tries to squeeze more juice out of it than there is. Lifestreaming is basically just a presentation template for data aggregation. It serves a purpose but like online video, it's just a standard thing now. No big deal.

  3. I used to work with the guys at Dopplr but then got 'enticed' away to work for Google UK. The guys there are some of the smartest I've worked with and their work is certainly a cut above the competition.
