About a month ago I posted a continuation of my Implementing Facebook Connect series on how to establish a connection to Facebook. In this post I am going to look at using that connection we established to access user data and render it on a page.

Implementing Facebook Connect (Part 2) - Establishing a Connection

Two weeks ago I took a look at Facebook Connect (FC) summarizing what it is and why developers would want to integrate it with their own applications in part 1 of this series. Originally I had thought this would be a two post topic but as I have learned more about FC I think it’s going to take a few posts to get up and running successfully. So, in this post we’re going to get all the pre-requisites out of the way and establish a connection with Facebook from our own application. We will then look at how we can do things with that connection in subsequent posts. Ready or not… let’s get started!

Implementing Facebook Connect (Part 1) - What is Facebook Connect?

I have been spending some time recently developing an online community which will hopefully be launched next quarter. One of the things I wanted to integrate is OpenID to try and lessen the burden of signing-up and logging-in. However, after doing some research I’m thinking that Facebook Connect might be the better way to go.

To begin we will first look at what Facebook Connect is and does and the next post will get technical and look at how to integrate it with your next CodeIgniter or PHP application.

Generating PDF files using CodeIgniter

PDF files rock! Some of the programs used to view them could use some work, but the file format itself is real handy. As a programmer I have found PDF’s to be most helpful when generating reports that need to be printable. I know we are all supposed to be doing our part to make our offices “greener” and use less resources like paper. But some things just need to be printed (especially when your talking about the financial and legal industries).

Simply Perfect RSS Parsing

RSS is a really useful tool for syndicating content between separate sites. Those people familiar with blogs and such are probably very familiar with RSS. Some of the clients where I work have taken advantage of RSS feeds provided by Web MD and other medical content providers to display new and updated content on their own practice websites. It’s a nice feature, especially for sites whose content doesn’t change all that often. You just need to be sure to check the terms of use for the site whose feed you want to use to make sure that type of use is allowed.

10 Reasons Why CodeIgniter Rocks

The top 10 reasons why you will love working with the CodeIgniter framework.

Every once and a while you come across a blog post or forum discussion about what PHP application framework is the best. They each have their own positives and negatives, but the true answer to that question is that it depends on the programmer. Each programmer has a different style and different priorities when it comes to adopting a tool kit to use when building apps.
