Tools like Facebooker make Facebook development seductively simple, and they will get you 80% done. Unfortunately, the last 20% can be a brutal death gauntlet, where common mistakes, and API ambiguities among others factors leave budgets shattered, developers exhausted and clients frustrated. I will show you how to survive the last 20% using techniques and code refined over the last two years. This presentation will be segmented into these subtopics:

  • Speeding up Facebook development through Rails templates
  • Iframe vs. FBML, choosing the right application type
  • Minimizing API calls, though caching and hydrators
  • Cheap and easy speed boosts to your Facebook application
  • Avoiding common development gotchas in Facebook development.
