- Montreal 2012
When OpenSocial was first introduced, the main goal was to create an open and distributed alternative to the closed off Facebook platform for social apps. Since then much has happened: The specification has majored and powerful new features have been introduced. More and more social networks are implementing OpenSocial containers, allowing developers to reach over 900 million users with one social app. Additionally education organizations and enterprise companies like IBM, SAP, SurfNET or Atlassian are seeing the benefits of an open standard to open them up to other developers. In this presentation I will introduce you to OpenSocial, and walk you through an example to show you how easy it is to connect an existing web application to enterprise products and social networks alike. I will especially highlight some of the new OpenSocial 2.0 features, such as Embedded Experiences or OpenSearch, that help you with a tight integration into your user's existing tools and workflows.
