Developer Feed and Developer Meetups

June 13, 2007ByDave Morin

It has been just over a couple of weeks since the launch of Facebook Platform, and your response has been tremendous. We are excited to see so many new developers, new ideas, and new applications coming into the community. Here are a few updates for you today:

New Facebook Developer Feed
If you've already created an application and want to stay up to date with the status of the Facebook Platform at all times, we've created a new information feed just for you. We know that it is important to know if there are any changes to the API, bugs, or intermittent glitches so that your application stays consistent for users. So, we've created the this feed for you to keep up to date with changes on an ongoing basis. Check it out on the front page of the Facebook Developer app, and be sure to subscribe with your favorite RSS reader.

Facebook Developer Meetups Kick-Off
Facebook Developer Meetups are popping up around the country. Don't miss out! Whether you're sharing ideas with local developers, looking for partners on your latest project, interested in seeing app demonstrations, seeking developer support direct from other Facebook Developers, or just looking to meet and socialize with other developers interested in Platform, Facebook Developer Meetups are a great opportunity!

This week, Meetups will be taking place in:
New York City - Wednesday 7-9 PM at Cresa Partners

San Francisco for WWDC Attendees - Wednesday 9PM - 2AM at Harlot Nightclub

Boston - Thursday 4-7 PM at Panera Bread on High St.

Stay tuned for more updates. We'll be hitting Seattle, Chicago, Los Angeles, and Washington DC this summer!
