From: Peter A.
Sent on: Saturday, November 3, 2007 3:48 PM
The meetup is now THIS TUESDAY, to accommodate the speaker.

I've updated this event. For more details, see the full listing:

When: Tuesday, November 6, 2007 at 7:00 PM

Where: The Network Hub
3rd floor - 422 Richards Street
Vancouver, BC V6B 2Z3

What: Matthew Chiu is doing a talk entitled "Facebook on Rails". It looks really great, and is a very timely topic.

"I would like to offer a quick talk on the Facebook platform and the challenges of
using rails to develop Facebook apps. I have been working on an app which is Facebook Native rather than an IFrame app, and based on my experiences
I will discuss the pros and cons of using a proprietary markup language vs. web standards like HTML and javascript.

My talk will also focus on the RFacebook library and some of its shortcomings. I will give examples of how RFacebook could be extended to meet developer's needs and also talk about bugs in RFacebook, which haven't been patched in the main release."

"I am a software developer and entreprenuer who is currently focused on doing social networking apps. Previously I have held software development positions with Oracle, Samsung and a number of startups. I hold degrees in computer science from Cornell and Stanford."

RSVP limit: 40 "Yes" and "Maybe" RSVPs
