Kenny Ketner quick edit
* Kenny Ketner, Texas Tech University Libraries,
Developing with the facebook platform can be both exciting and something that you wouldn’t wish on your worst enemy. This talk will chronicle the Texas Tech Libraries Development Team experimentation with Facebook Open Platform (fbOpen) as we attempt to create a facebook-like social media application for Texas Digital Tech University Libraries , hopefully expanding to the Texas Digital Library (TDL).
More than just a facebook app or page, fbOpen is a complete implementation of the facebook system on a LAMP stack – Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP – which must be maintained by the institution itself. This project is at an early stage, so emphasis will be placed on the challenges of installation, configuration, and testing, as well as the pros and cons for institutions that are considering taking on a similar project.
