DIY Facebook App Development

I’m now a Facebook developer!

I take a strange bit of pride in something that required little more than a copy and paste job, but thanks to Widgetbox’s App Accelerator, I turned my blog into a bona fide Facebook application. I even have my very own API key.

It’s not a work of beauty, and it’s much easier to read this blog in an RSS reader, via email, on this site, on a personal homepage, or via just about any other way you’d choose. Yet for those who are least remotely curious what goes into the backend of these applications, it’s a fun experience to try – especially for those of us whose only developing experience was in photography class in high school (ahh, the smells of the dark room chemicals come back to me as I write this).

Thanks to Charlie O’Donnell for the link.
