The OpenSocial Foundation cordially invites you to attend the annual State of the Union event on May 12, 2011, from 1:00pm to 5:00pm. This is your chance to learn first hand about the exciting new happenings taking place in the community. In addition to presentations from members of our community, there will be two additional opportunities for you to be directly involved, the pre-SOTU interop event, and the Happy Hour/Poster Session!
Don't sit on the sidelines--get involved!!
There will be a Happy Hour & Poster Session immediately following the State of the Union from 5:00pm ~ 7:00pm. You are welcome, and encouraged to use this as an opportunity to share your ides. Simply sign up on the OpenSocial wiki page. This will be a great chance to learn about all the wickedly cool stuff happening with OpenSocial. And don't forget to bring your laptop. What goes better with a cold beverage than a bit of hot code?
Attend the pre-SOTU interop & spec working session!
Got a gadget? Got a container? Now's your chance to meet the developers of applications and containers and get "interoping". From 8:30am to 12:00pm (location TBD) there will be an an opportunity for application providers to work directly with container providers to demonstrate the interoperability and portability of OpenSocial based applications. The wiki page is under construction and will be updated as we fill in the details.
OpenSocial 2.0 is under development!
There are some incredibly exciting proposals out there, e.g Embedded Experiences and Activity Streams. Not to mention mobile. The pre-SOTU event will also be an opportunity for specification authors to work together on many of the exciting 2.0 proposals.
I look forward to seeing you and, of course, encourage you to get involved and participate. All are welcome to attend both events. However, space is limited so please use eventbrite to register in advance.
If you've got any questions, drop a note on the OpenSocial Community group.
The Web is better when it's OpenSocial!
